For our 2015/2016 season, Carlos Agudelo chose to choreograph and present an all time family favorite, Cinderella. This timeless fairytale of true love, Prince Charming, two hilarious Stepsisters, a scheming Stepmother and a magical Fairy Godmother captivated all ages with music by Serguei Prokofiev. The ballet ran October 16-18, 2015, at the Chapman Cultural Center. Sponsors of this ballet were the South Carolina Arts Commission, The Chapman Cultural Center, Contec, Inc., and The Susan Patricia Hodge Foundation.
In addition, to the presentation of the ballet, The Prince and Princes Cinderella Community Project was created to engage school students to write stories and illustrate ways to help others if they were a Prince or Princess of a village for a day. Submissions were sent in by teachers and students' creative essays/illustrations were displayed for patrons and ticket holders in the lobby. All who submitted were given free admission. A beautiful princess from Spartanburg School District 2 was chosen. Our Cinderella Company member, Charlotte Lanning, visited our winner on Friday, October 16th, 2015, in the hospital in Greenville were she was admitted. She was able to attend the ballet on Sunday.
Please enjoy Cinderella with your family for February Family Month.
