COMING IN MARCH!!

AHS's Drama Department Presents. . .



Experience the magic with Arlington High School Drama Department’s spring production of Rodger and Hammerstein’s classic story, Cinderella! The cast, crew, and production team at Arlington High School collaborate to bring this incredible production to our community.

In a new creative twist, director Scott Moberly has moved the setting of the story from classic medieval times to the post-industrial era, bringing in elements of Victorian style and influence from the machine age. However, the well-loved story remains intact- watch in awe as Cinderella discovers the magic and power within herself, with a little help from a bubbly Fairy Godmother, a handsome prince, and everyone’s favorite mice. The production features 47 outstanding singers, actors, and dancers from AHS.

Starring in the title role is talented senior Meghan O’Hara, currently in her fourth year with the AHS Drama Department. “Cinderella is a story of magic. Not magic that is granted upon you by some outside force, but magic that is found in one’s self,” explained O’Hara. Jack Rogers will be playing opposite her in the iconic role of the charming Prince Christopher. “This character is so different from myself, and portraying him will be both challenging and thrilling. It is an honor to have the opportunity to play this role,” said Rogers.

The show is designed and led by an incredible production team. For costumes and choreography, the drama department has brought in Melissa McFadden and Miranda Quinton, who both worked on the AHS production of The Music Man last year, which was later nominated in five categories at the 5th Avenue High School Musical Theatre Awards. McFadden will work with student costumers to design and create beautiful, innovative costumes for the production, while Quinton will be choreographing the epic dance numbers. Other key members of the production team include Jeff Swanson, who acts as the musical and orchestra director, and Lee Haines, the technical director. Directing this show is the incredible Scott Moberly, who has been spearheading this production from its birth in June 2014 and will stay with it all the way to the final bows in March. 

The cast and production team invite everyone in the community to be a part of what is sure to be one of the most memorable productions in Arlington High School drama history. We welcome you to share in the magic!
