OHMPAA - Community Theater in the Hills
Cinderella program cover


Music by Richard Rodgers
Book by Oscar Hammerstein II
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Presented September 1996 at Paris Hill Academy

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]

Comments and notes

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.
