MANTI—Manti High School (MHS) Theatre Presents Cinderella, a timeless fairy tale reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality.

The production will be in the MHS auditorium from Nov. 17-19 and Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. and is directed by MHS theater teacher Kory Howard with the original music by Brian Sullivan, played by the MHS pit orchestra.

“This year we have a really loving cast,” Brynn Peterson, cast member, said. “It seems like everyone is really involved and we want to make this as magical as we can for the audience.”

The cast will perform the “Enchanted Edition” based on the 1997 teleplay about how dreams come true with the belief in magic.

The story begins with a beautiful girl named Cinderella played by Sydney Howell, who lives with an unloving family. But when the prince, played by Justin Bawden, throws a ball, magic happens for Cinderella.

Watch as Cinderella’s stepsisters, played by Aubreigh McGregor and Emily Frischknecht, attempt to match Cinderella’s beauty and grace to win the heart of the prince while her wicked step-mother, played by Malorie Hansen, does everything she can to stop Cinderella’s dreams become a reality.

With the help from the Fairy Godmother played by Abby Huff, and the rest of the cast and crew, Cinderella comes to life in a feature-length musical.

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the musical medium after the original presentation starred Julie Andrews aired on television in 1957.

The production is scheduled for four showings on Nov. 17-19 and Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. General Admission is $5 and $4 for children five years to 10-years-old.
