renditions of their roles are created by Rachel Prescott as Cinderella
and Ehren Schweibert as The Baker.
Mr. Schweibert’s Baker is right on point with his acting, and
his singing is pleasant and reveals much of the Baker’s character! Ms. Prescott sings and acts the part of Cinderella
exquisitely, making the part her own with rich nuances of emotion and
an excellent singing style – Sondheim as Sondheim must have
and Choreographer Marco Gomez’s attention to detail and fun makes
this outing a pleasure. Adding
just as much value to the production are the elements contributed by
Michael Mullen, the Costume Designer; Denise Emery, the Make-up
Artist; and both as the Hair Dressers.
Also, a special mention must be made of the excellent orchestra
and musical direction by Dolf Ramos.
The score requires precise instrumental music, and this group
lives up to its charge!
Director Anthony Treschi has assembled a fairly broad range of talent
and experience in the individuals of this cast.
Happily, they all blend together to shape the audience’s
experience from silly to somber.
It is an evening to be enjoyed!
(Come a little early as late arrivers will not be seated until
intermission.) Try to catch this fairytale-with-consequences before it is
gone! - Pamela Wilson
