The Cache Valley Civic Ballet, currently in its 39th performing season, will share one of the most beloved fairy tales of all time at the Ellen Eccles Theatre on March 18 and 19, and thanks to a generous donor, children can experience the production for free.
Against the backdrop of Sergei Prokofiev’s lush score, Artistic Director Sandra Emile and her company tell the rags-to-riches love story full of beautiful dancing and plenty of comedy.
Cinderella (performed by senior company member Anne Summers) suffers cruelty at the hands of her stepmother and stepsisters but is still kind enough to share bread with a poor beggar. To her surprise, the beggar is really her Fairy Godmother (performed by senior company member Laura Geertsen), prepared to grant the young girl’s most earnest wish: to attend the prince’s (performed by Logan High School senior Darius Kirschman) ball. Cinderella’s magical night unfolds against a midnight deadline.
