Directed by Linda Sturdivant.
The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance.
Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. [Rodgers & Hammerstein]
There was a plumbing issue just before the show opened, which meant the lawn was "decorated" with porta-potties for the duration of the run!
I had horrible laryngitis after the Friday night gala. Elton stepped in and sang "my" solo to me. I was so grateful to him and that remains one of my fondest OHMPAA memories. - Cynthia R.
