That dream that you wish…

The BCSS stage will come alive with the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Cinderella in four performances over the next two weeks.

Be prepared to be wowed by the costumes in the upcoming production of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Cinderella on the BCSS stage later this month. Fine arts instructor Sarah Tripp is especially thrilled to welcome Japanese exchange student and pianist Ami Ichishima to the BCSS music department for this musical. With a cast of 25 and three costume changes

Fine arts instructor Sarah Tripp is excited to be bringing Cinderella to the school stage, her third major production since coming to BCSS. Tripp says this telling of the Cinderella story is done with wit, music and lots of costumes. The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical was written for television in 1957. The original production starred Julie Andrews, and a new film production of it is scheduled for release in March.

“The show features several large parts and everybody gets a song,” said Tripp.

She is especially thrilled to welcome Japanese exchange student and pianist Ami Ichishima to the music department for this musical. “She plays the piano like nobodies business,” said Tripp. “She’s a rock star!”

The students have been working on the play since October. Tripp promises strong performances by all. She offered praise for the kids involved saying, “There are a lot of positive kids who want to work.”

She said the musical is funny, but not in a childish way. “It is totally enjoyable for adults.”

With a cast of 25 and three costume changes the audience is pretty much guaranteed value for their $10 admission ($8 for kids under 12). There will be a rock ensemble by BCSS students during the intermission.

The show will run for four nights over two weeks – on Jan. 21 and 22; and the following week on Jan. 26 and 27. Proceeds go back into the music and drama program.

She advises that tickets are usually sold out and you call the school (250-449-2224) to reserve yours.
