Milford Drama to Present Cinderella


The students of Milford Drama Club are preparing to present Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. This is the Broadway version of the show that is based on the 1957 television film starring Julie Andrews; it is a fun, updated retelling that takes the fairy tale we all know, adds classic Rodgers and Hammerstein music, and mixes it with a more modern spin on the princess.

Director Carissa Meiklejohn says, “I am excited about bringing this story to our stage and presenting some magical moments.” Audience members of all ages are sure to feel the same way.

This year many new members have joined the drama club, from both Milford High School and Milford Central Academy, and this young cast is eager to take the stage. Freshman Paige Thompson plays Ella, the kind young woman who dreams of a better life, and Sophomore Dylan Phillips plays Topher, the charming young prince who is searching for his true love.

Other student performers include Mary Jocelyn Argo, Brianna Bailey, Jacob Elliot, Jakob Faulkner, Jesus Gomez, Marlee Lorraine Gray, Kevin-Lee Harding, Anna Hatfield, Raine Hendricks, Abby Lincoln, Caitlyn Maloney, Hadley O’Day, Elizabeth Pierce, Hali Pierce, Logan Redden, Danae Martinez Romualdo, Sienna Tamburo, Aryanna Tangaro, Haley Thompson, Jace Thompson, Isabella Rosa Tyrrell, Mystery Villa, Anastacia Weilenmann, Rebecca Wisniewski, and Natalie Zelano.

Performances will be held in the MHS auditorium on Thursday, February 28; Friday, March 1; and Saturday, March 2. All three evening shows will begin at 7:00 PM. There will also be an afternoon matinee on Saturday, March 2 at 1:00 PM. Tickets will be available at the door. $5 for students age 18 or younger; $6 for seniors 60 or older; $8 for all others.
