Monsignor McCoy production of Cinderella opens tonight

SAMANTHA JOHNSON Local Journalism Initiative Reporter

Isabel Garcia loves being on stage, singing and working with the cast and crew on the production of Cinderella by drama students at Monsignor McCoy High School. Garcia is one of the students playing Cinderella, which has been double cast. “It’s taught me lots of patience because Cinderella is very patient with everyone. When things don’t happen, I need to be patient and know it will come together in the end.”

Madison Cox is the other student cast as Cinderella.

“It’s nice to know I’m not doing this alone and I have someone who understands what I’m going through. I can get tips off her and we can workshop things together,” said Cox when asked what it’s like playing a double-cast role.

Cox, who has been dancing for 11 years with Hanson School of Dance, has also learned patience from playing Cinderella. “I have to get out of that mindset of I’m working with dancers, I’m working with people who are trying to learn to dance,” said Cox.

Shows are on Dec. 1 and 4 at 7 p.m., and Dec. 2 at 3 p.m. in the Eresman Theatre at Medicine Hat College. Tickets are $15 and available through McCoy’s school office or through SchoolCash online.
