Cinderella Brings Magic to the Stage
D.S.A.’s Drama Department presents their annual spring musical, Rodger's and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella”! This made-for-TV musical is the classic story of a hard working girl who falls in love with her Prince Charming and learns that wishing for dreams to come true is not as important as actually pursuing them. The title role of the young lady who steps into the slippers of royalty will be shared by Victoria Adolphson and Gabriella Difabio. The show is produced and directed by Mrs. Sandy Cain, DSA Drama teacher. It is her 9th year at D.S.A., and in that time she has directed such shows as “The Secret Garden”, “The Wizard of Oz”, “Annie”, and “Fiddler on the Roof Jr.” Also lending their skills to this show are Music Director Harold Wright, Choreographer Myriah Jost and Co-Producer Robert Moszenberg. The other 91 performers of the cast are students from Kindergarten all the way through eighth grade.
Opening night will be Friday, May, 3rd and is followed by the special opening night gala. Other showings include Saturday, May 4th, Friday, May 10th, and Saturday, May 11th. Performance times are 7pm on Fridays and at 2pm and 7pm on Saturdays. Opening night tickets will be $7 online (with a 50 cent surcharge per ticket) or $8 at the box office (which only opens one hour before each performance). For all other performances, tickets are priced at $5 online and $6 at the box office. (Please remember you CAN NOT buy tickets online the same day of any given performance. No exceptions.)
Online ticket sales will begin on Monday, April 15th and all performances are at the Frank R. Howes Fine Arts Theatre. Our school is once again very excited to showcase the amazing talents of our students in our production of “Cinderella” and we hope to see you there!
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation's mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors, and entire communities.
MAKE A ROYAL WISH COME TRUE FOR A CHILD!!
The DSA Drama Department is proud to provide a special opportunity to raise money for a most worthy and magical organization during our production of Cinderella. Your children (and the rest of the family if you wish) will have the opportunity to take a special photograph on stage with Cinderella, the Prince and our Royal Carriage following each performance!
The cost will be $5 per photo. Please feel free to have your daughters dress up as "royally" and "majestically" in their best princess attire; or have your sons suit up like a king or prince. Create a special memory for your kids and help make a special memory for some other family as well!
