Music by Rodgers, Richard | Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Directed by Heather May
Music Direction by Tom Laney

The ‘G2K’ Getting To Know Series: Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers.

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. Princess and knightly attire encouraged.

Tickets for the production are $15.00 for Adults and $10.00 for Children 12 and under.

Cinderella Tea (Optional – Sold Separately) – LIMITED TO 40 SEATS
Come enjoy refreshments and fun with Cinderella, the Fairy Godmother and all their friends after our Sunday Matinees. Feel free to come dressed in your best princess or knightly finery to take photos and have fun.

$10.00 each. 4:30-5:30 After Sunday Matinee


Touring children’s theatre offers weeklong workshop, musical

Forty Lubbock-area theater students from grades one through 12 can take part in a two-day production on Aug. 19 and 20 of the 60-minute musical “Sleeping Beauty,” following a five-day workshop overseen by professionals with the touring Missoula (Montana) Children’s Theatre (MCT).

The event is sponsored by the Lubbock Arts Alliance and Lubbock Community Theatre.

Details are available by calling Elizabeth Regner, executive director of the Lubbock Arts Alliance, at 744-2787.

MCT, billed as the nation’s largest touring children’s theater, will visit Lubbock Aug. 15-20.

The company will arrive with a set, lights, costumes, props and makeup — everything needed to stage “Sleeping Beauty” except a cast.

Auditions for students in first through 12th grades are planned from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Aug. 15 at Lubbock Community Theatre, 4232 Boston Ave.

At least 40 students, ranging in age from 6 to 18, can be cast. (All students auditioning will earn a part.)

No preparation is required for auditions.

However, each person cast in the play must register for the visiting company’s workshop before being allowed to take part. Cost of the workshop is $175 for those signing up by July 15. The price rises to $200 after that date.

Registration can be completed online at http://www.planetreg.com/MissoulaDayCamp.

Theater students not in the play can sign up for workshop classes for the same price, if they want.

Rehearsals and workshop classes take place from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Aug. 15-18 at Lubbock Community Theatre, and also from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Aug. 19 at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Theatre.

Workshop students must bring a sack lunch each day. Snacks and water are provided.

Theater students have been instructed to dress in loose, comfortable clothing. MCT allows no open shoes, sandals or flip-flops, and preferably no dresses or skirts.

The MCT residency is made possible by Texas Women for the Arts, Evelyn M. Davies Foundation, Texas Commission on the Arts and Vern Farthing.
