USM students in the cast of Maine State Music Theater's specialty production of "Cinderella"

Maine State Music Theatre's sensory-friendly

Several Musical Theatre students at the University of Southern Maine performed for the Maine State Music Theatre’s production of “Cinderella” last month.

The cast also performed an interactive, sensory-friendly show in late May. 

An article that appeared in Broadway World stated: "The youthful cast, largely from the University of Southern Maine musical theatre department, does the piece justice, inhabiting their characters with gusto. Madelyn Rancourt and Elliot Nagler make a radiant romantic couple as Cinderella and her Prince; Nakesha "Kay" Warren is a warm, boisterous, Fairy Godmother; Brian Pelletier is Sir Reginald, the Prince's serious and attentive aide. As the narcissistic trio of mean step-relatives, Ben Walker-Dubay makes mother Blanch a haughty, supercilious woman, while Miles Obrey as Soberella and Andrew Carney as Giggletta limn the bickering, jealous, vain step sisters to perfection. Stage Manager Laura Scott anchors the performance and, together with Clark who hosted, helped guide the youngsters through the experience.

Carla Maria Verdino-Süllowold took photos of the sensory-friendly production.
