Cinderella was a spectacular production for people of all ages. Many children in the audience came dressed as their favorite princesses to support the cast and crew. Everyone involved in the show put in a tremendous amount of work and it paid off. We interviewed the stepsisters, Josefine Nielsen and Emily Bassett, about their experience in the show.
-How did you balance school and the play?
Emily- “We all worked together to help each other and did our homework during free time in drama.”
-What was your favorite part of the play?
Josefine- “Definitely getting to know all the people in the cast and becoming friends with them. That’s what I love so much about having a small cast- everyone gets so much closer.”
This teamwork showed on Friday, which was opening night. Due to some technical malfunctions, the curtain at the beginning of act two would not open. Thankfully, the wonderful stage managers, Ivone Pereira and Meghan Metzendorf, found an alternate solution, and the show continued on.
Saturday afternoon at 12 pm “Cinderella’s Ball” was hosted. Refreshments were provided and kids were able to interact with the characters, getting pictures and autographs. Young girls also had the opportunity to try on the glass slipper, in search of the one it would truly fit. The matinee show at 2 and the evening performance at 7 went off without a hitch. All in all the show was a resounding success, and we are all very proud of those who contributed!
