The glass slippers are being polished and the final magical touches are being made to the sets ahead of Salesian College’s production of Cinderella later this week.

Students have been working tirelessly in recent months, rehearsing, singing and dancing ahead of opening night on Friday.

The students will take to the stage in the storybook classic for three shows bringing to life all the characters you love – and love to hate.

Salesian College principal Mark Brockhus hopes the production will leave audiences spellbound.

“Our biennial college production provides an occasion for all students to participate in the creative life of the college, with opportunities to display their skills in acting, music, dance, stage management or backstage orientation,” he said.

“Students work together as a cohesive group to ensure they present and develop a high quality and memorable performance.

“We love to provide opportunities for our local community to get together with their families.

“ThisCinderella college production will leave everyone feeling positive and uplifted.

“It will have you smiling and laughing and remind you that anything is possible, if only you wish hard enough.”

Cinderella will be at the Clocktower Centre on Friday at 7.30pm and Saturday at 1pm and 7.30pm.
