New London, MN, April 23, 2021– The New London–Spicer Drama Department has announced they will perform the original musical Cinderella in the NLS Performing Arts Center this spring.

“We are thrilled to be producing the musical “Cinderella” for a limited audience in the PAC.” said Paula Prill, director of drama productions at New London–Spicer Schools and the PAC facility manager.  “We will be showcasing talented students as we move back into performances during the Covid pandemic.”

Prill is joined on the directing team by vocal director Naomi Powers-Baker, scenery construction directors Dave Holmquist and Ben Mooberry, and student director Amina Huda.  The cast and crew include 36 students, including elementary and high school participants.

“Seniors will be prominent in the production as they perform the 3 days prior to their graduation ceremony.”  Prill also noted that, “while Covid forced a very short production schedule, we couldn’t let this talented group of seniors leave without a farewell musical.”

Tickets are $10.00 and will be available beginning Friday, May 7th at 9:00am. ALL SEATS ARE RESERVED!  Tickets may also be purchased in the Community Education Office at NLS High School beginning on Monday, May 10th.  Audience members are encouraged to buy tickets PRIOR to the day of the show.  Tickets purchased at the door will be sold on a “best available” basis and choice of specific seats will not be offered.  Only cash or check payments will be accepted at the box office.  Seating is limited due to Covid requirements, and a sellout is anticipated, so it is strongly recommended that tickets be purchased as early as possible.
