From the elegant costumes and ballrooms to its timeless tale of love, the visual and performing arts department’s production of “Cinderella” is set to hit the stage from March 5-7. The production team, including cast members, pit orchestra, technical theater and advisers, has worked toward the creation of the fourth annual Spring Musical since its announcement on Oct. 31.

“I think the most enticing parts of the musical are the sets and costumes,” cast member and senior Aliyah Davis said. “We have a lot of really interesting and diverse set pieces that move around a lot, which make the show really interactive. Also, the costumes this year are really advanced, and I think that the audience will enjoy seeing how they help to shape the story.”

Davis, in her portrayal of the villainous stepmother, Madame, will be joined by other iconic characters such as Cinderella, played by junior Raksha Rajeshmohan, Prince Christopher, played by senior Nishad Francis, and many more.

“Unlike the previous musicals, ‘Cinderella’ has a much larger spread of unique characters. From townspeople to royalty to heralds and horses, the dynamic of the ensemble is constantly changing, which makes the show feel like it exists in its own small world,” Davis said.

Watch the cast of “Cinderella” perform on March 5-7 in the theater, with 7 p.m. shows on all three days and a 2 p.m. show on March 7.
