Liberty Elementary School’s Liberty Chorus and Musical Theater (LCMT), under the direction of teacher Lori Broermann, presents Tom Briggs’ adaptation of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella performed by the talented LCMT fourth, fifth, and sixth graders.
The lively and beautiful music of Richard Rodgers’ and the romantic and sometimes quite comical lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein II, bring to life the classic story of the orphaned Cinderella who is forced to serve her stepmother and stepsisters. Excitement and anticipation spread through the village when the heralds proclaim that, “The Prince is Giving a Ball.” The entire village is invited to the dance where the Prince will choose a suitor. However, Cinderella’s stepmother says she may not go to the ball. Cinderella sings, “In My Own Little Corner” as her imagination takes her to all the places she dreams of going. Her godmother appears and they sing “Impossible!” while Cinderella is wishing that the pumpkin and mice in the garden would turn into a carriage and horses that could whisk her away to the ball. All the Fol-de-Rol and Fiddle-Dy-Dee wishes make Cinderella’s dreams come true. Her rags become a beautiful gown and a pair of glass slippers adorn her feet. She hurries off to the ball with the warning that she must leave before the stroke of midnight when the magic will end. Of course, the Prince is entranced with Cinderella and they sing “Ten Minutes Ago.” The stepsisters and other maidens at the ball sing the very comical “Stepsisters' Lament,” and ask, “Why would a fellow want a girl like her, a frail and fluffy beauty?” “Why can’t a fellow ever once prefer a solid girl like me?” There is a happy ending for Cinderella and the prince as the cast joins in singing, “It’s Possible!”
Performances are open to the public and are held in the Multi-Purpose Room at Liberty Elementary School (get directions). Admission is $4 per person.
LCMT is in its 15th year of producing Junior Musicals, under the direction of Ms. Broermann, vocal music teacher.
