CINDERELLA  COVER DESIGN CONTEST

The Region 6 Players invite students currently enrolled and attending Wamogo Middle School, Wamogo High School, Litchfield Middle School or Litchfield High School to create artwork and submit as a potential cover, logo, and/or T-shirt design for the upcoming FALL musical, RODGERS AND HAMMERSTEIN’S CINDERELLA.

SHOW SYNOPSIS

Cinderella, forced into a life of household chores by her wickedly cruel stepmother and stepsisters, dreams of a better life. The town crier announces a royal ball at which the Prince of the kingdom intends to find a bride, and Cinderella wishes she could attend. When her stepsisters and stepmother go off to the ball, a Fairy Godmother appears and magically grants Cinderella’s wish. At the ball, Cinderella and the Prince meet and instantly fall in love, but she abruptly excuses herself at midnight, leaving only a glass slipper on the palace steps. After an extensive search throughout the kingdom, the Prince and Cinderella are magically reunited and blissfully married.

While we are all familiar with the classic film that first appeared on TV in 1957, the version that we are bringing to the stage this fall was written for Broadway in 2013. This modernized rendition was written for a “savvy, modern audience” and features characters who “take charge of their own lives and destinies.” And the best part– all the beloved songs from the original film are included!
