CCHS drama, music departments to present 'Cinderella'
Central Community High School's drama and music departments are presenting Rodgers' and Hammersteins' classical musical "Cinderella" Friday, Nov. 8, and Saturday, Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m. at the Central Performing Arts Center (CPAC).

Activity tickets will be honored and tickets will be sold at the door only.

This is the third year a high school musical will be performed at the CPAC.

The story follows the classic tale of a young girl living with her stepmother and stepsisters. The stepsisters and stepmother treat Cinderella like a servant rather than a family member. Cinderella does not seem to mind because she has her own dreams to keep her happy, along with a godmother who visits her.

The prince is holding a ball in the kingdom to find a suitable wife for himself. The stepmother and stepsisters are looking forward to the opportunity to snag the prince. Cinderella also dreams of meeting the prince.

Cinderella shares her wish with her godmother. Cinderella hopes her godmother can help her with the wish. Finally, Cinderella discovers her godmother is a fairy godmother and grants her wish to attend the ball.

The prince falls in love with Cinderella immediately. He wants to know her name, but before she can tell him, the clock starts chiming twelve. The fairy godmother told Cinderella to make sure she left the ball at midnight. The prince is heart broken and searches all over the kingdom to find the girl who fits the slipper. Later, Cinderella is discovered by the prince in the royal garden. The prince puts the slipper on her, it fits and they live happily ever after.

This production has classical Rodgers and Hammerstein music such as "In My Own Little Corner," "Ten Minutes Ago," "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful," "The Prince Is Giving a Ball," "Boys and Girls Like You and Me" and "Stepsisters' Lament."

The cast is headed by Mikayla Coyle as "Cinderella" and Zach Lively as the "Prince." The "King" is played by Garrett Conard and the "Queen" is played by Andrea Weiss. The "Stepmother" is played by Rachael Bertolino and the "Stepsisters" are Miah Betz and Tasha Becker. The "Fairy Godmother" is played by Bre Rohde.

The rest of the cast plays townspeople, dancers at the ball and sing in the chorus.
