“Impossible things are happening every day.” – Fairy Godmother
The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was one of the most widely viewed programs in the history of the television. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s adaptation brings new life to the story of a young woman forced into servitude who dreams of - and achieves - a better life. Cinderella features some of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most beloved songs, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible,” “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?”, and “Ten Minutes Ago.”

"…words give wings to the mind and make a man soar to heaven.” - Pisthetaerus from The Birds
This year, the Middle School Theatre II class will compete in the PSIA One-Act play festival with the classic Greek comedy, The Birds by Aristophanes.
Disillusioned with life in Athens and its law, courts, politics, false oracles and military antics, Pisthetaerus and Euelpides (roughly translated as Trustyfriend and Goodhope) hope to make a new start in life somewhere else and believe that the Hoopoe (the birds) can advise them.
