The Westview Jr.-Sr. High School Music Department will present Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella during the first weekend of November.
Performances will be at at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2, and Saturday, Nov. 3, and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4.
Students have been hard at work preparing for the performances with rehearsals since the beginning of September. While all roles were determined by audition, many of these students have experience from years of productions, and they can really act a song and sing a scene!
The fairy tale from long ago about a servant girl who is transformed into a princess has been an opera, a pantomine, a ballet, an ice show, a comic book, and a video game. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella – the songwriting team’s only musical written for television – was seen by over 100 million people in 1957, subsequently remade for TV twice and adapted for the stage. Westview has retained the classic fairy tale aspect, which will make the show a delight for all members of the family.
A handsome prince finds – and then loses – his own true love. He’ll find her again (in spite of those mean stepsisters with feet too big for the glass slipper) in this song-filled version of the fairy tale about a servant girl who is transformed into a princess.
