Cinderella and more presented by local talent this winter

Who doesn’t enjoy the romantic fairy tale of a humble young woman and a charming prince?  Cinderella

After being handed down through generations, the story became even more beloved when
a certain pair of Broadway men set it to music – and the endearing musical Cinderella was born. Rodgers and Hammerstein originally wrote it as a 1957 television special and a vehicle for Julie Andrews, with the stage version coming later. Do you remember that broadcast, or the 1965 version with Lesley Ann Warren, or the 1997 remake with Brandy Norwood?

Local talent will present the stage version over the next two weekends at South Baldwin Community Theatre in Gulf Shores. This timeless story will make a wonderful family activity.

But Cinderella is not the only show being presented by this hard-working group this season:

Alert and Vertical, written by local playwright Laura Pfizenmayer, will play the 2nd and 3rd weekends in January.

“Mark Twain and Mr. Clemens,” Tonight is slated for Jan. 23-25.

Neil Simon’s The Sunshine Boys will be presented in mid-February by a cast of our winter snowbirds – always fun.

A ladies’ gathering at the beach takes an unexpected twist when Southern Sirens hits the stage mid-March.

Musical comedy The Ransom of Red Chief closes the season with performances April 24-May 3.

Be sure to keep the South Baldwin Community Theatre schedule in mind as you consider your leisure schedule. You’ll be rewarded with lively entertainment while supporting the local culture.
