The directors and cast of the community musical production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella – Enchanted” are already hard at work getting ready for this exciting production! If you haven’t had the opportunity to attend one of the past productions, surely don’t miss this one! With professional quality acting, lighting and sound, and live music provided by Kanab’s own Symphony of the Canyons under the direction of Kortney Stirland, this production is the highlight of the summer.

If you would like to join the cast, crew or symphony for the production, it isn’t too late! “Come one – Come all” and join your talents with theirs as they bring to the community, Cinderella!

And now without further ado, “Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away, lived a lovely little girl who smiled throughout the day...” The play opens with the story of a time early in Cinderella’s life when she was just a young girl. The talented Brynn Hepworth plays that lovely little girl, with Josh Barton at her side as her brave and tender father.

The familiar and beloved story continues with vivacious energy, complete with magical moments and a good dose of comedy by these capable actors and actresses under the direction of Linda Alderman.

The lovely and multi-talented Kylie Owens plays sweet Cinderella, who just wishes to find approval of her stern step-mother, played energetically by Jill Miner, who only wants her daughters to marry into wealth. Jenna Corry and Kayla Chavez, two multi-talented ladies, play the awkward and sullen daughters and Cinderella’s step-sisters, Grace and Joy, respectively.

Once these ladies hear of the announcement by the kingdom’s tall royal steward, played by the towering Bruce Davis, they are sure Prince Christopher, played by the charming Andrew Corry, will propose to one of them at the ball concocted by the Prince’s loving mother, Queen Constantina, played by the talented Bobbie Broadhead and father, King Maximillian, played professionally by Cleve Bushnell.

However, unbeknownst to all, as Cinderella pleads in tears at her mother’s tree, Cinderella discovers someone is watching over her. Her Fairy Godmother, played by Mariah Wheeler, magically appears and helps her see her true potential...with a bit of magical help.

Of course, no production is complete without a great ensemble cast. This year will be no exception to the talent and ability of past ensemble cast members. Watch for an upcoming article featuring the tremendous ensemble cast and their unique additions to this year’s production!

Save-the-date and plan to spend a magical evening in a kingdom far away when the directors, crew and cast bring you, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella – Enchanted,” on July 30, 31 and August 1. Ticket purchase information coming soon.
