“Cinderella,” based on the classic children’s fairy tale, is the only Rodgers and Hammerstein musical originally written for television.

It was rewritten for Broadway and ran from March 2013 to January 2015.

The SCHS production features Ellie Klarl as Cinderella, Sydney Harris as the Fairy Godmother, Shunrodney Rosser as the Prince, Tyler Spezzano as the King, Sasha Alleyne as the Queen, Lauren Nash as the Stepmother, Samone Daily and Alexus Alexander as the Stepsisters, and  Dylan Chisolm as Lionel. The cast also includes several students from Robert Burch Elementary School and Flat Rock Middle School. Members of the SCHS band and orchestra will perform the music live. The production is directed by Alison Chambers and choreographed by Jonsie Pollock, with SCHS Choral Director Craig Robertson directing the music.

Tickets are $8 for children and students and $12 for adults. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the SCHS front office Wednesday, April 22, through Friday, April 24.
