Barn Theatre presents their production of the family friendly delightful musical, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA, playing August 9 - 21.
This fresh and exciting adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein's 1957 made-for-television musical (which starred Julie Andrews) brings adventure, romance, and a miraculous kingdom to the stage. One splendid night the famously wistful maiden Cinderella (played by 1st-Year Apprentice Annie Wessendarp) meets her Fairy Godmother (played by 1st Year Apprentice Amy Harpenau), who helps grant her wish to go to the ball! A pumpkin turns into a golden coach, mIce Turn into horses, a dove becomes a footman, and she falls in love with a handsome prince (played by Jamey Grisham). Even if you know the ending, this quintessential classic will.
