‘Cinderella’ ready for weekend shows

“Cinderella,” with Jamie Knox as the overlooked sister destined for a great night at the ball and junior Sam Lubs as her prince in waiting, will open two shows this weekend on Friday, March 8 and Saturday, March 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Tickets are $9, and activity passes will not be accepted.

Rodgers and Hammerstein´s “Cinderella” musical will be performed by over 70 actors and musicians Friday, March 8, and Saturday, March 9 in the high school auditorium.  Countless hours were put into practice and preparation, and the performers have embraced the effort and bonded as they approach opening night. 

Junior Madison Vetter has seen everyone involved do their best to make the show as good as possible. “We all know that there is a goal that we want to achieve, and we all want to make it the best show we possibly can,” Vetter said.  

Play has the ability to bring many people together who may not have talked to each other before.  In sophomore Gus Ferguson´s first year in play, he was able to become a part of a community that he usually wouldn’t be a part of.

“I am happy that I was able to get close with the other people involved because I was able to break out of my shell and talk to people I usually wouldn’t think of talking to,” Ferguson said.

Vocal director Mr. Kranz has seen lots of improvement from the cast since the very start.

“The performers have made great strides over the past three months to have a great show to perform for our community,” Kranz said.

After all the hours they have put into it, the performers are a little nervous to make sure they perform the best show possible, but said they believe that it will turn out great.

“We are really nervous just because we want everyone to enjoy it, but we are all excited because we have finally got through it, and we think it is really good,” Vetter said.

“I’m really excited to perform just so I can see all my hard work pay off. It has been a long journey, but I really think it will be worth it,” Ferguson said.

Seeing their hard work pay off is exactly what Kranz wants the performers to carry with them from “Cinderella.”

“The most important thing is for the performers to see how hard work and dedication pay off in the end,” Kranz said.

Ticket prices for both Friday and Saturday are $9 and can be purchased on the Cedar Falls High School website.
