Cutler Brothers Productions in Deer Lodge, Montana will stage Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” May 8th-18th.
“Cinderella” was originally a musical written for television with music by Richard Rodgers and a book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. It is based on a French fairytale.
The Montana-based production company is introducing actress Annmarie Downey to her first leading role as she will play the beloved Cinderella. Downey has performed in several Cutler Brother’s shows including her favorite performance as Liesle in “The Sound of Music” last season. Playing opposite Downey is Powell County High School senior Peter Schoening who takes on the role of Prince Charming. Schoening also played opposite Downey last year as he played Rolf in “The Sound of Music.”
Butte ‘s Cheri Taylor will play the role of the stepmother. Taylor was last seen as the Wicked Witch in Cutler Brother’s version of “Wizard of Oz” last summer. Taylor’s stepsister sidekicks will be played by Deer Lodge’s Jenn Logan and Sarah Tilley, both Cutler Bros. veterans.
Deer Lodge favorite Kyle Gillette will play the King and Muriuh Alexander will play the Queen. Cutler Bros. newcomer, Neiman Patrick Wilson, will play the Prince’s right hand man in Lionel. Wilson has performed in numerous productions in the Kalispell area. Several other familiar Deer Lodge faces will grace with stage in “Cinderella” as well.
