Get your tickets now for Kuna's production of Cinderella
If you haven't gotten your tickets to Kuna High's production of Cinderella, you should do so soon.
Opening night for the Kuna High School production of Cinderella is quickly approaching. The first of five performances kicks off this Thursday, Feb. 23, at 7 p.m.
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella is a musical written for television in 1957, with music by Richard Rodgers and book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. It is based on the fairy tale “Cinderella.” Like the fairy tale, the story concerns a young woman forced into a life of servitude by her cruel stepmother and self-centered stepsisters and dreams of a better life. With the help of her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella is transformed into a princess and finds her prince.
Gileann Tan plays the lead role of Cinderella. Tan, a junior, is no stranger to the stage, having performed in several productions of the Music Theater of Idaho, including a lead role as Tuptim in “The King and I.” She has also appeared in Suessical the Musical, Annie and South Pacific.
The Fairy Godmother is being played by Kayelee Farris, whom audiences likely will remember as the memorable lead in the Kuna High production of Oklahoma two years ago.
Tan and Farris are both incredible singers, and the two of them singing onstage at the same time will no doubt impress audiences. We're going to the matinee on Saturday.
