EAC presents musical Once Upon A Dream

By Lori Dugan

THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Musical Theatre Department will present Once Upon A Dream…The Classic Story of Cinderella October 17, 18, and 19 at 7:30 p.m. and October 20 at 2 p.m. in the Gherald L. Hoopes Jr. Activities Center–Lee Little Theatre.

The classic story of Cinderella lends itself to the exploration of silly, funny, heroic, and even dastardly characters. When Dave and Jean Perry, authors of this musical version of Cinderella, sat down to start this project, their goal was to create a musical with many roles so as many students as possible could be involved.

Their fun came in creating the parts for the cast to play, with the only standard roles in the show being the King, the Queen, the Prince, and Cinderella.

“Anyone who loves the story of Cinderella will love this musical version,” said EAC Musical Theatre Director Trish Jordahl. “We have had a lot of fun putting this show together.”

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students, and are on sale now at the EAC Ticket Office. Call 428-8228 for more information.
