The Centennial High School Theatre is working tirelessly to prepare for the production of Cinderella. Performances will take place on March 16 and 17 at 7:00 p.m. and on March 18 at 3:00 p.m. in the school’s auditorium. Tickets can be purchased at the door at a cost of $15/Adult and $10/Student, or in advance at the Centennial High School front desk or directly from any cast member at a reduced rate of $10/Adult and $5/Student.
“I chose Cinderella because of the agelessness of the story,” said Centennial High School’s Theatre Director, Terrie Howard.“Almost all of us have some connection to the story – whether it was seeing the Disney animated movie, reading the bedtime story, or playing the story in our childhood years. This is a new telling of the story by Rogers and Hammerstein with some new characters and some old friends. Everyone, of every age will enjoy this musical!” she added.
This year, Centennial is excited to participate in the Shuler Awards. Adjudicators from the program will be in attendance at the production. These talented individuals evaluate how each participating high school musical exceeds its own potential, utilizing its available resources. Thus, each musical is evaluated and scored against itself for consideration, rather than against all other school productions, charging schools to create the best possible work in their unique circumstance and environment. An awards program takes place at the Cobb Energy Center on Thursday, April 20.
Centennial’s production of Cinderella features a relatively large cast, with 19 very talented musicians in the pit, a cast of 31 including singers, dancers and actors, and a crew of 16 technicians working behind the scenes on the production. It should be a wonderful experience for all and one you won’t want to miss!
