The Carrollton Center for the Arts, UWG’s Theater Department and local actors will present this season’s spring musical, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, April 12 – 16.
“Working on Cinderella has been a delight,” said the show’s director, Amy Cuomo. “The music is beautiful and collaborating with UWG students and actors from Carrollton has been a joy. The design teams are busy creating the world for this exciting production. I hope everyone will come out and see the show.”
The timeless fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers and Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its re-creation in 1965, starring Lesley Ann Warren, was no less successful and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother.
“This iconic story that Rodgers and Hammerstein have sewn together of a person who needs help realizing their dreams reminds us at every stage of our journey we should continue to believe in our hopes,” said Music Director John Williams.
The production is sponsored by Dr. Richard and Marilyn Glass and J. Collins Funeral Home.
“We have had a great year featuring local artists during the Center for the Arts’ twentieth anniversary,” said Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman. “I think the public will agree that Carroll County has many talented musicians, artists, writers, vocalists and actors. Cinderella is our final main stage production of the season and will showcase all the many talents our community possesses.”
Tickets for the performance are $15 for adults, $10 for youth and UWG students with University ID and are on sale at the center’s box office or online at carrolltonarts.com.
