Mark your calendar: “Cinderella” comes to Wellsville April 14-16


Come See Cinderella and Have a Ball!

The magical fairy tale Cinderella is a timeless classic. A neglected young woman has the magical night of her dreams, meeting a handsome Prince and experiencing love at first sight. When the magic ends, the Prince must prove his love by looking past surface appearances to find his one true love.

Wellsville Secondary School is proud to bring the original Rodgers and Hammerstein musical version of this story to our stage on April 14th, 15th and 16th. The title role, originally played by Julie Andrews, is masterfully portrayed by Hayden Waldon. Audiences will be mesmerized by the chemistry of Cinderella and the Prince.

They will love to hate Cinderella’s stepmother and stepsisters, will chuckle at the quirks of the King and Queen, and will be enchanted by the wit, magic, and mystery of Cinderella’s Godmother.  The show is sure to delight young and old alike.

A team of veteran theatre staff is hard at work helping the students shine for their performances. Director Matt Warren is proud of all of the hard work that the cast has done for this production. “They have consistently put their focus and creativ- ity into the singing, dancing, and dialogue that make up this charming show.” Vocal Director Eric VanDruff is amazed at how far the cast has come in learning the music since rehearsals began in January. Kate Martelle, our production’s choreographer, is impressed by how well the actors are learning the traditional ballroom waltz that is central to this show, especially since it’s not a dance style that any of them had encountered previously. All of the staff can’t wait for the students to have an audience to appreciate their magic.

Cinderella is set to hit the Wellsville Secondary School Auditorium stage at 7:30pm on April 14th & 15th and at 2:00pm on April 16th. Make a plan to bring your whole family to this delightful production. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students and senior citizens. They may be purchased in advance at Brand Name Appliance or the Wellsville Secondary School Main Office. They can also be acquired at the door.

If you would like to support the production financially, contact producer Diane Willard at for more information about becoming a patron of the show.

Mark your calendar and immerse yourself in the magic and joy of Cinderella.

You’ll be glad you did.
