Bippity Boppity Boo! Cinderella’s Spellbinding Story Resurfaces at UPHS
Written by Esther Mack, Correspondent

            The Upper Perkiomen High School Drama Department hopes to spark up the magic within a classic tale by bringing to life a modernized version of Cinderella.

            This year's musical production follows Rodgers and Hammerstein's newly adapted Cinderella where old favorites reappear together to experience a refreshing storyline.

            Much like in modern times where young women take the spotlight, this play correlates to topics that pertain to the present day. Political issues and women empowerment are centralized concepts that surface as the plot gradually develops. Nonetheless, traditional characters will take center stage, thus triggering nostalgic memories and feelings to transpire in the hearts of many.

            The cast and crew have been feverishly preparing for the musical since October. As seasoned members guide and teach others the dynamics of the drama department, new talent emerges from the younger classes as well.

            The commitment and time that is devoted into the production is nothing less than extraordinary. Many other community members have also contributed their personal talents into this production. From grandparents, young children, and anyone in between, it is safe to say that these unified efforts are stronger than any kind of spell.

            As the audience gradually submerge themselves into this classic story with a sparkly twist, each person will have the ability to take something away from the show. One of the most magnificent functionalities of the play is that is presents open interpretation.

            Whether it is an adult or child, no one is limited from witnessing what the Fairy Godmother may be unveiling before them. The Fairy Godmother tells us that the magic is already within us, so perhaps it is time for us to find it once again.   

            The shows are performed from Thursday, March 8 through Sunday, March 11.

            Productions from Thursday through Saturday will begin promptly at 7 p.m. and the show Sunday will begin at 2 p.m. Premium center seats are $10 and general admission is $8 plus a fee.

            Tickets will be available at the door.

            Doors open 30 minutes before the show and raffle baskets along with snacks will be available.  If there are any other questions or concerns, please feel free to call the customer service number at the bottom of the website.
