Downers Grove South presents 'Cinderella'
Downers Grove South High School Drama will present an updated version of the rags-to-riches classic "Cinderella."
Performances begin at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, April 27 to 29, and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 30, in the school auditorium, 1436 Norfolk St., Downers Grove.
While the original book, music and lyrics were by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein, the school's production showcases a new book by Douglas Carter Beane to tell the familiar story.
Poor Cinderella is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and envious stepsisters. Worst of all, she's been denied a chance to go to the ball. Fortunately, with a little help from her fairy godmother, Ella discovers that anything is possible.
Featuring beloved songs such as "In My Own Little Corner," "Impossible," and "10 Minutes Ago," the show aims to inspire audiences of all ages to seek their own happily ever after.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and non-District 99 students, and free for District 99 students with a student ID. Tickets may be purchased at the door or by calling (630) 795-8518.
