ProArts Playhouse in Kihei presents "Cinderella," one of their island-famous fractured fairy tales, as the second show of their spring season, which will continue through June this year.
This new production of "Cinderella" is an original musical adaptation of the classic story featuring the best of Maui talent, including Casey Murphy as Cinderella; Mark Bolden as the nerdy Prince Rupert; Rose Roselinksy as The Baroness, Cinderella's arrogant stepmother; Dale Button and Kristi Scott as the devious stepsisters, Gauntine and Pudgina; Bill Schnitzer as the uptight King Reginald; Vinnie Linares as Percival, the patient page; and Sarah Loney as the confused but magical Fairy Godmother, ably assisted by Dylan Bode as her well-organized mouse secretary.
The show is produced, directed and written by Jonathan Lehman. Sarah Loney is responsible for the fairy tale costumes, with scenery created by Caro Walker and lighting provided by Bonnie Prucha.
