Relive Rodgers and Hammerstein's remarkable and memorable past with Centre Stage's second show of the 2006-2007 season, “Cinderella.” After a successful encore run of Disney's “Aladdin,” Centre Stage is pleased to announce the production of one of the most beloved fairytales for children. "Seeing the excitement in the faces of these young actors as they bring life to these storybook characters they so greatly cherish, makes me feel young and alive," said Barry Dean, artistic director. "Knowing that makes all the hard work and expense involved in producing a show of this magnitude worth it." Opening night is Friday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m., with additional performances on Saturday, April 7 at 3 and 7:30 p.m. There will not be performances on April 9. The show will continue on Friday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, April 14, at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, April 15, at 3 and 6:30 p.m. Center Stage also has a special award earning performance for Scouts on Saturday, April 14, at 3 p.m. Performances will be held at the Nathaniel Center, located at 804 Russell Palmer Road in Kingwood. Cinderella will be played in an alternating cast by Cara Cavenaugh and Haley Elsenbrock. Luke Kerschbaum and Sean Pink will play Prince Charming. Other featured cast members include Alli Harper and Monica Brown as the Fairy Godmother, Josh Forsyth as the Herald, Heather Girling and Katie Lingren as the Queen and Art Rocha and Scott Forsyth as the King. With sly encouragement from Adriana Tomeu and Tori Bailey, who share the role of the Evil Stepmother, Brianna Woodson, Dani Straitwell, Iain Robertson and Lauryn Ferguson play the roles of the evil step-sisters Joy and Portia, making life miserable for Cinderella. Centre Stage has been producing musical theatre and teaching children since 1984, and has helped to launch successful careers in theatre, film and television for numerous students. "Following each performance, for a small tax-deductible contribution, the memory of this enchanted live theater experience can be captured forever by having your child's picture taken with Cinderella in her golden carriage," said Dean. Photographs will be taken by Pat and Ray's Photography Studio. Rodgers and Hammerstein's version of the classical fairytale was first seen as a television spectacular in 1957, re-made for television in 1965 and again in 1997.
