and Saturday, April 6th at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Pennridge High
School is presenting the new Broadway adaptation of the classic
musical, Cinderella. This will include the beloved songs, “In My
Own Little Corner”, “Impossible”, and “Ten Minutes Ago.” The
play also includes new, as well as old characters with surprising
new twists to keep you on the edge of your seat. The story is
about a young woman forced into servitude by her cruel
stepmother and step sisters, while she dreams of a better life
for herself. Thanks to her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella
transforms into a princess and finds her prince. All ages are welcome to join in the
audience for a great night of entertainment.
This year’s new Broadway adaptation of the classic musical Cinderella, is featuring
some of the most talented actors and singers in Pennridge High School. Featuring;
Emma Zimmerman as “Ella”; Corey Shipman as “Topher”; Clareigh Ellis as
“Charlotte”; Ivy D’Agostino as “Gabrielle”; Bryce O’Connor as “Jean-Michel”; Megan
Cordes as “Marie”; Meghan Brislin as “Madame”; James Maine as “Sebastian”; and
Jimmy Mamrol and Eli Kenworthy as “Lord Pinkleton.”
Many of the cast and crew have enjoyed working with the teachers and staff to create
this musical for your entertainment. When speaking with Maggie Sullivan, a Pennridge
High School senior, she stated that her reason for being a part of the drama club is,
“Getting to be the person I always looked up to watching in the audience. And now I
want kids to watch our show and say, ‘that’s what I want to do.’” She also states;
“the music director Sam Brannon has helped me the most. I’ve known her since I was
very little, and she always wants to see me improve and succeed.”
Emma Zimmerman, a student at Pennridge High School, says; “It is so different. This
isn't the Disney version; it is the Rodgers and Hammerstein version. Same basic plot,
poor girl, rags to riches, glass slipper, fairy godmother, falls in love with the prince,
but there's so much more. It is really a complete story of all the characters that
everyone knows and loves, and a few new ones that they do not!”

All tickets are eight dollars; tickets must be purchased for both adults and children.
