Maple Ridge Secondary puts on Cinderella Swift-style

June 19, 2024

By Colleen Flanagan, The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows News

Students of the Maple Ridge Secondary School’s musical theatre program are telling the classic tale of Cinderella – but in a style that befits the pop star Taylor Swift.

‘Cinderella (Taylor’s version)’ is a jukebox musical telling the tale of the poor servant girl who is magically turned into a princess for one night by her fairy godmother, to attend a ball and meet a prince who is searching for his true love.

In a race to get back to her house before the magic spell wears off, Cinderella loses a glass slipper, which is found by the prince, who then goes searching for the woman who fits the shoe, the woman at the ball whom he has fallen in love with.

Cara Roberts is the stage director of the show, MRSS choir teacher Claire Oliverio is the musical director, and Grade 12 student Emma Johnston is the student lead choreographer, who choreographed all the numbers in the production and collaborated with Roberts to pick the final range of Taylor Swift tracks for the show.
