Cinderella - February 22

Chaparral High School

 End Notes 

A note from the Director:


Have you ever wondered what would happen if you took 130 students, 7 adults, a well-known musical, and asked them to produce a show?  We just happen to know the answer. Welcome to the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.  Last spring, we were looking for the perfect musical for the performers, musicians, and technicians who attend Chaparral. We were bouncing around ideas when we came across Cinderella, but we all thought it has been done a lot.  However, I went ahead and read the revised version and was blown away at the depth of character, the new arrangements of songs, and the new twists to the plot. We found our musical!


The performing arts team would like to thank the Patrons for the Performing Arts for their continued support. Just this winter, they spent nearly $20,000 on new LED stage lights that will illuminate performances for years to come. This department could not do what it does without the support of our parent community.


Musical theatre is such a valuable part of a student’s education. Musical theatre teaches students to communicate, to think critically, to collaborate with peers and teachers, and to create a work of art in a way no one else can. These students have been on an educational journey for the last 4 months to bring you a live performance tonight.  Please enjoy the time, energy, and talents of everyone involved! Thank you for supporting live theatre and the Chaparral Performing Arts Department.


Thank you,


David Peterson
