The Prince is Giving a Ball and you’re invited! This May join Cinderella, her friends and not so friendly stepsisters as they take you back to the magical world of one of the most loved fairytales.
This May Engadine Musical Society is bringing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s, Cinderella to the Engadine Community Centre.
Originally written for television, the show tells the tale a Cinderella, a young woman who is oppressed by her malicious and self-obsessed step mother and sisters. With the help of the Fairy Godmother, Cinderella is transformed into a beautiful maiden and finds her prince.
President, Sue Bunt, says the show was the perfect choice for the company’s May 2019 production. “We wanted to do a show that parents and grandparents could share with their families and Cinderella seemed the perfect fit.”
The show features music by Rodgers and Hammerstein (Sound of Music and Oklahoma) and features great songs such as “In My Own Little Corner,” “Step Sister’s Lament” and “Ten Minutes Ago.”
Director Michael Astill says the production aims to capture the tale’s key message. “Cinderella is one of the stories that kept us daydreaming throughout our childhood and made us not want to settle down for anything less than happiness. And most importantly, it taught us to never give up on our dreams.”
Lauren Lofberg (Cinderella) leads a talented cast who all do a remarkable job bring the characters of this time-honoured tale in a modern way.
Cinderella will be performed at the Engadine Community Centre from May 17 to 26. For more information visit www.engadinemusicalsociety.com.au
May 17, 18, 22, 24, 25 @ 8pm and May 18, 19, 25 and 26 @ 2pm at the Engadine Community Centre.
