Ben Davis to present 'Cinderella' for its fall musical

The Ben Davis High School Choral Department will present “Cinderella” 7:30 p.m. Oct. 11 and 12, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Oct. 12. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students. They may be reserved by calling the choir office at 988-7023.

Members of the cast include: Ali Orebaugh, Cinderella; Mark Menciano, Prince Christopher; Morgan Barnett, Stepmother; Kambria Moncrief, Fairy Godmother; Emily Bigley, Step-sister Joy; Juanya Ingram, Step-sister Grace; Marvin Bills, Lionel; Madison Baker, Queen Constantina; and Blake Reynolds, King Maximillian.

Members of the ensemble are: Bella Bertoni, Thomas Bibbs, Daniel Buchanan, Abbigale Cole, Jesse Cronley, Taylor Crum, Keiston Drake, Emma Drummond, Mary Evans, Tyler Futrell, Jocelyn Gillespie, Alexus Gillespie, Quiana Grayson, Alauren Harris, Olivia Heifner, Analise Hernandez, Tynae Jefferson, Imani Keith, Lamara Land, Terra McFarland, Susan Mijangos, Clara Mullins, Chris Miller, Allyssa Nauman, Yessica Olguin, Gwen Pickett, Kayla Richardson, Joe Ridenour, Da’Lynn Turnley, Tazire Weaver, Destiny Smith, Alex Sutton, and Tori Zaragoza.

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” began as a made-for-TV movie that aired on CBS on March 31, 1957. The broadcast of “Cinderella” starring Julie Andrews was seen by the largest audience in the history of the planet at the time: 107 million people in the United States, representing 60 percent of the country’s population at that time. Due to its immense popularity, “Cinderella” was brought to the stage a year later by the The London Coliseum in England, who had honor of performing it live for the first time. In the United States, “Cinderella” began appearing onstage in 1961.

The 1965 “Cinderella” featured a cast as remarkable as the original: Ginger Rogers and Walter Pidgeon played the King and Queen; “Oklahoma”’s original Ado Annie, Celeste Holm, played the Fairy Godmother; Jo Van Fleet was the Stepmother with Pat Carroll and Barbara Ruick as her daughters; and Stuart Damon played the Prince. A young Broadway star-to-be, Lesley Ann Warren, played Cinderella. Taped for broadcast, this “Cinderella” premiered Feb. 22, 1965, and was shown on CBS eight more times through February of 1974.
