There is a type of magic that happens in every Theatre class during every production. You see bonds developing, friendships blossoming, trust growing – maybe it’s because students are forced to put themselves out there to be judged, they are forced to take a risk, and once they realize that they are being applauded instead of judged they trust in a way that is not always easy. I love to see this happen.

The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.
