What happens when a mother, who also is a queen, sets aside all objectivity and begins to meddle in her son’s life? Well, the result is perhaps not exactly what she initially has in mind, but the ultimate result is the fun-loving, magical tale of “Cinderella.” Music Boosters will present Rodgers and Hammerstein’s charming musical version on the Pagosa Springs High School stage June 29 and 30, and July 1, 5, and 6. “Cinderella” will feature a talented cast of some of Pagosa’s favorite actors, as well as a few who are making their Music Boosters debut.
In the story of “Cinderella,” the queen (played by Anne Price) tires of waiting for her son (played by Jarret Heber) to find a royal mate. Over the king’s (Kurt Laverty) objections, she takes it upon herself to give a royal ball, inviting every eligible young maiden in the kingdom. Though, for most young men, this sort of party might have some rather pleasant potential ramifications, the prince wants to find true love on his own terms and, in spite of the prince’s adamant objection, the queen’s wishes win out. The royal ball is announced to the villagers by the royal steward (Max Miller), and takes place as scheduled. The result of this wide-sweeping wife search is a rather hilarious display of awkward pcess wannabes all vying for the hand of the most eligible bachelor in the kingdom.
