Playing March 10 through April 3

By Informational Post March 6, 2022

The Aurora Theatre is proud to unleash the magic of the sensational Broadway classic, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella. This grand musical that the whole family will love will roll into the lavish 500-seat Clyde & Sandra Strickland Grand Theatre of the new Lawrenceville Arts Center, March 10 – April 3

Audiences have been anticipating this production since it was first announced two years ago, originally slated for production in July 2020—but as all good fairy godmothers know, “Even miracles take a little time!” The enduring fairytale will feature treasured Rodgers and Hammerstein songs, such as “In My Own Little Corner” and “Impossible/It’s Possible,” alongside a hilarious and romantic story that adds new characters and surprising twists. The rags-to-regal journey of Ella parallels Aurora Theatre’s humble beginnings, to fulfilling the dream of the brand-new Lawrenceville Arts Center.

“I am not known as the most patient person, so I held on the best I could. I am proud to announce with anticipation and excitement that—after two years of waiting— Aurora now brings you Cinderella, also known as our happily ever after, the Lawrenceville Arts Center,” explains Aurora Theatre Co-Founder and newly named Producing Artistic Director, Ann-Carol Pence. “This timeless story is made relevant today by a new more, resilient Ella. We want to make sure that every little girl who comes to see the show feels like a princess, because each little child is already royalty. Aurora strives to do that for every woman we meet. The new script by Douglas Carter Beane reminds us of our responsibility to stand up for those who have no voice. Most importantly, it reminds all the bullies, ogres and all-around bad guys that it is time to be kind.”

An all-star cast has been assembled with the incomparable India Tyree as Ella and Jackson Hurt, who will make his Aurora Theatre debut as Prince Topher. The principal cast is comprised of top Atlanta talents and Aurora audience favorites including Marcie Millard as Madame, Candy McLellan as Gabrielle, Galen Crawley as Charlotte, Rhyn McLemore as Marie, Steve Hudson as Sebastian and Marcello Audino as Jean-Michel. The show boasts an impressive ensemble with Cole Ferguson, TereLyn Jones, Jonathan Bryant, Jenna Jackson, Jacob Attaway, Ayana DuBose, Lawson Lewallen, Isa Martinez, David Wells, Cameron Smith and Janhavi Shivalkar. Making the theatrical magic happen is the impressive design team comprised of Scenic Designer Kat Conley, Sound Designer Jeremiah Davison, Lighting Designer Ben Rawson, Costume Designer Alan Yeong and Props Designer Ryan Bradburn. At the helm of the production are the award-winning team of Ricardo Aponte as director and choreographer and Ann-Carol Pence as music director.
