It’s almost time for the royal ball! Wellesley Theatre Project (WTP) will present, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA Friday, June 8th at 5pm and 8pm, and Saturday, June 9th and Sunday, June 10th at 2pm and 5pm.

CINDERELLA is a well loved timeless, classic tale by Rodgers and Hammerstein. When her wicked Stepmother and evil Stepsisters prevent her from attending the royal ball, Cinderella expects to spend her night at home cleaning the house. With the help of a magical spell from a Godmother, and some lovely forest friends, Cinderella is able to attend the ball where she meets a charming Prince. When the clock strikes midnight, and the spell wears off, Cinderella must go. Will she ever be reunited with the Prince or will she be stuck living under the rule of her Stepmother forever?

Due to a high demand in participation there are two talented casts filled with over 70 students between the ages of seven and thirteen that comprise an energetic ensemble of Townspeople, staff, royalty, and even animals. Cast members of CINDERELLA reside in Wellesley as well as neighboring communities including Aburndale, Chestnut Hill, Medfield, Needham, Newton, Waban, Weston, and Wayland.

Written by Tony Award winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, 13: THE MUSICAL is an unforgettable rock musical about fitting in, and standing out.  Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain…or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?

Wellesley Theatre Project’s 13: THE MUSICAL features a talented cast of 18 students between the ages of twelve and fifteen. These cast members reside in Wellesley as well as neighboring communities including Needham, Natick, and Dover.

Registration is open for WTP’s Spring classes including Acting, Musical Theatre Dance, Improv, Stage Combat, and more! In addition, registration is open for WTP’s 2018 Summer Camps.
