Sioux Falls Play Review: Premiere Playhouse Presents ‘Cinderella’
Sioux Falls is full of talented actors and actresses. There are plenty of opportunities to witness these brilliant performers. The Premiere Playhouse is one company that showcases local actors and actresses through various productions.
Each year, The Premiere Playhouse performs new shows that differ every season. In its 20th season, The Premiere Playhouse will bring to life a total of five shows and musicals. One of the shows happening right now at the Orpheum Theater is Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella.
Everyone knows the classic story of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella. But this story from The Premiere Playhouse has a "groovy" twist...the story is set in the 1970s! The story shows off plenty of funky styles and vibrant colors, advocates for peace and love, and radical songs. Managing Artistic Director for The Premiere Playhouse Oliver Mayes explains:
"This groovy, intergenerational production is the true definition of community, Throughout our process, I have witnessed an inspiring level of collaboration and teamwork among a large theatre community to bring a familiar fairytale to Sioux Falls audiences in a new and exciting way."
This show is totally "far out!" Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella from The Premiere Playhouse is one of the most creative shows I've seen in a long time.
I have never pictured Cinderella in the 1970s until I saw this show from The Premiere Playhouse. It's a great modern storyline about one of everyone's favorite princesses. The show is even better when you sing along with the music! Sidenote: Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella is one of my favorite productions to see. So...I was singing during the entire show (haha).
