KANAB – Kanab Area Community Theatre celebrates 30 years of theatrical entertainment this year with its 14th community production since the group’s founding in 1984. A little magic sweeps onto the Kanab High School auditorium stage July 31-Aug. 2 when Kanab Area Community Theatre presents Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella: Enchanted Edition.”
“It’s a delightful show, it really is,” Stephanie Johnson, prop master and left-hand stage manager for the production, said.
The show includes all the elements found in the original Rodgers and Hammerstein production, including favorite songs like “In My Own Little Corner,” “The Prince is Giving a Ball!” and “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?” Some of the “enchanted” elements, Johnson said, relate to animals, like mice and cats, and other characters brought to life by child actors.
“It’s Disney-esque,” Johnson said.
“It’s a different edition,” she added. “It is Rodgers and Hammerstein, but it’s a different take on it.”
An added special element to this year’s production is that Symphony of the Canyons, Kanab’s famed resident symphony orchestra, led by maestro Kortney Stirland, will provide musical accompaniment for “Cinderella.” Symphony of the Canyons also celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.
Leading the show’s cast is Kylie Owens as the rags-to-riches princess Cinderella, with Andrew Corry as her romantic counterpart, Prince Christopher.
“Cinderella” is sponsored by the Kanab Utah and Kanab Utah Kaibab Stakes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Tickets for the show are $10 per person and can be reserved online, and tickets will also be available at the Kanab High School ticket office, 59 E. Cowboy Way, beginning July 28.
