‘Cinderella’ Musical On Stage At Delta’s Tillie Lewis Theater
Delta cinderella

Delta College’s tradition of summer musicals returns this month with “Cinderella,” a Rodgers and Hammerstein classic.

As always, the production is free and open to the public.

“Cinderella” is a two-act musical derived from the fairy tale, particularly the French version “Cendrillon ou la petite pantoufle de verre,” by Charles Perrault. The story concerns a young woman forced into a life of hardship by her cruel stepmother. She dreams of a better life, and with the help of her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella is transformed into an elegant young lady and is able to attend the ball to meet her prince.

This production is recommended for all ages. Complimentary tickets are available online at the DCA Box Office or you can request tickets by calling 209 954-5110. Seating is limited, and is on a first come first serve basis, so plan accordingly.

Delta Drama students are putting on the production; all shows will be on stage at the Tillie Lewis Theater on the campus of San Joaquin Delta College at 5151 Pacific Ave., Stockton.

Shows are scheduled Fridays, July 15 and 22; Saturdays, July 16 and 23; Sundays, July 17 and 24. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.

The Drama Program believes in the importance of providing to the college community a Drama curriculum that develops knowledge, skills and competencies necessary for transfer to the upper division level as well as fulfilling AA Degree general education requirements.

The Drama Program provides a rigorous, disciplined, and integrated curriculum designed to meet the vocational demands of the theatre profession. Delta offers scholarships to new students who qualify.

The Actor Training program is a two-year course of study in which students who have successfully auditioned can concentrate their efforts in rigorous acting classes three times a week in the first year and five times a week in the second year, while also studying stagecraft in separate technical classes.
