Hualalai theatre summer camp presents Cinderella (June 14)


Hualalai Academy hosted its fourth annual Musical Theatre Summer Camp and will present ‘Cinderella’ at one free showing June 14.

The hands-on experience was open to all West Hawaii youth and focused on the rehearsal, creation and production of a professional style musical theatre play. Each student actively participated, under the guidance of mentors, in acting, singing, dancing, costume, scenery, and prop construction.

The performance is 2 p.m. Friday, June 14 in Hualalai Academy’s Bridge Building. Admission is free and open to the public.

The timeless fairy tale meets the magic of Disney in this adaptation of the treasured animated film.

Poor Cinderella is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters, and denied a chance to go to the Royal Ball. With a little help from her mice friends, and a lot of help from her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella goes to the ball, meets the Prince, and falls in love!

With a beautiful score including “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” and the classic “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” this musical will charm its way into your heart, and remind you that dreams really can come true.
