Cinderella: A Dream Come True - April 7-8
Here is the classic re-telling of the rags-to-riches fairytale of a young girl forced to live with her cruel stepmother and her equally foul daughters. Cinderella's kind and gentle nature, despite her surroundings, makes her a favorite with the three feisty mice who have also taken up residence in the house. Cinderella finds comfort in her dog and in a somewhat forgetful Fairy Godmother.
Meanwhile, in another part of the kingdom, the King and Queen are zealous in their pursuit of grandchildren. They decide to throw a ball to find their son, Prince Phillippe, a wife. Jacques, a "master storyteller, juggler and jester extraordinaire," narrates the tale from the very beginning, all the while confounding the King's right-hand man and beleaguered servant, Bernard.
Come see how the magical tale unfolds and how Cinderella and Prince Phillippe came to live happily ever after in Hilton High School’s production of Cinderella: A Dream Come True on Friday, April 7 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, April 8 at 2 p.m.* and 7:30 p.m. in the High School auditorium.
