I’m excited to be in front of a full house audience again. Last year was great, but there’s nothing like performing in front of a full audience.”

The show is directed by Ms. Julia Davin and Mr. Todd Kuczawa. The student directors are seniors Angelina Magnotti and Stefi DiPrampero, and the dance captains are juniors Aubrey Manion and Alayna Banks.

When asked about how he feels about “Cinderella” being his last BPHS musical, senior Kessid Wicker, who plays Lord Pinkleton on March 16 and 18, said: “It is a little upsetting that it is my last show at BPHS, but it has been an amazing past four years. I look forward to coming back to see the shows in the future.”

It will be something that will remind people of normal times. It will also showcase amazing talent between the cast, crew, and orchestra.”
