Broadway in the Park: 'Cinderella' brings the ball to Suwanee
SUWANEE - Suwanee Performing Arts’ 2014 Broadway in the Park production comes to the Town Center stage July 25-26 as a cast of 70 young local performers and 30 backstage volunteers present Rogers & Hammerstein’s "Cinderella" as well as an original one-act play, "Spellbound – the Musical."
“Cinderella is a timeless story,” says Broadway in the Park director Patty Etherton. “It offers the best story and the best music and it’s so well put together.” The Suwanee production is based on the 1997 Whitney Houston version, which, she says, is more condensed and funnier than the original 1957 musical starring Julie Andrews.
"Spellbound – the Musical," an original play created by Suwanee Performing Arts founders Etherton and Bernetta Bock Davis, provides the back story for Cinderella’s magical godmother. The one-act play takes place at The Academy of Magical Arts, where a young Annabel is convinced that she is a failure because all of her spells turn to glass and don’t last through the night.
