CINDERELLA (ENCHANTED EDITION)
Timber Creek High School
1/30-2/2/2013
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. This Enchanted Edition is based on the 1997 teleplay.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Adapted for the Stage by Tom Briggs; From the Teleplay by Robert L. Freedman

"If the human race exists for another couple million years, could anyone ever hope to bring the same sense of playful romance to 'I've Got You Under My Skin' that Sinatra did? Or the kind of existential heartbreak that he brought to 'Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry'? It's entirely likely that as long as people listen to music, they'll be appreciating Frank Sinatra." - Washington Observer Reporter "…you'll marvel at the range of Sinatra's repertoire and get a kick out of this musical trip down memory lane." - Pittsburg Post Gazette

We first meet the girls as high school cheerleaders in 1963, and visit them five years later in their college sorority house as they confront their future with nervous jauntiness.

Vanities is an astute, snapshot sharp story of the friendship of three very different women.
