Shake the cobwebs off those magic wands and dust off your glass slippers for Suwanee Performing Arts' 2014 Broadway in the Park production. A cast of 70 young local performers and 30 backstage volunteers will bring Rogers & Hammerstein's Cinderella as well as an original one-act play, Spellbound – the Musical, to the Town Center stage July 25 and 26.

A classic fairy tale set to music, Cinderella is the story of a young woman forced into a life of servitude by her cruel stepmother and self-centered stepsisters; she dreams of a better life and a chance to attend the prince's ball. With the assistance of her fairy godmother, Cinderella's dreams come true.

Spellbound – the Musical, an original play created by Suwanee Performing Arts founders Patty Etherton and Bernetta Bock Davis, provides the back story for Cinderella's magical godmother. The one-act play takes place at The Academy of Magical Arts, where a young Annabel is convinced that she is a failure because all of her spells turn to glass and don't last through the night.

Broadway in the Park performances will begin at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, July 25 and 26. Admission is free, but reserved premium seating is available for corporate and patron sponsors. Contact Suwanee Performing Arts at 678-482-6333 for more information about reserved seating. In addition, lawn seating in front of the stage is available on a first-come basis for $10 and is designed especially for young children. These tickets will be available at Town Center Park beginning at 4 p.m. on performance days. Magic wands and tiaras also will be available for purchase.
