    FAITH HIGH SCHOOL CONSERVATORY STUDIO PRODUCTION
     
    A fantastic prequel to the beloved Peter Pan, and riddled with magestic stagecraft that heightens the imagination, audiences will find a young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk and a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly,  a Starcatcher-in-training, who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is “starstuff”, a substance so powerful it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates and the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure. “A brilliant piece of theatre with wonderous stagecraft, puppetry and a charm unlike anything I’ve seen!” 
     
    *This production is presented by the Faith Conservatory honors class.

CINDERELLA

List of 1 items.

  • INFO

    Music by Richard Rodgers
    Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein 

    Directed by DAVE ELLIOTT
    Musical Direction by MARYBETH ZENTNER
    Choreography by HALEY WHEAT
    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 where 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.

    When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion which results in a tremendous peach – and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. With beautiful spirit (and hilarious, energetic and moving songs reminiscent of WILLY WONKA and MATILDA) this musical is sure to touch the hearts of audiences of any age.
