CINDERELLA BY RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN
The Heritage Community Theatre in Perry proudly presents Cinderella! 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. Where: 2505 S HWY 89, Perry, UT. When: 7:30pm on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays February 24 through March 24, with Matinees March 3 & 10 @ 2pm.
