Marian Hall at St. Joseph’s Parish in Vancouver was the site of the highly publicized Glass Slipper Tea, an event crafted to draw attention to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Prep’s first ever musical drama production which will take place February 22 & 23 at 7:00 pm and Sunday the 24th at 2:00 in the afternoon. The Royal Durst Theater on Main Street in downtown Vancouver is the site of the presentation. Tickets are available through the school and will be available at the door.
Several grade school girls, dressed in their favorite Cinderella costume, attended the tea with mothers, aunts and grandmothers. Photo opportunities were available for the youth to pose with the “REAL” Cinderella and Prince Charming. A delightful afternoon of tea, desserts, photos, dancing, silent auction,
The volunteer laden effort has been spearheaded by a few volunteers intent on thanking the first frosh through senior class at the school for making Seton Catholic their choice and foregoing a few of the programs available at more established schools. The offerings at Seton have grown considerably in the past four years since it was established in 2009, but a musical drama is proving to be a popular event for the school.
The title role of Cinderella is being played by Senior, Madeline Hunter who hopes to embark on a career in drama. The role of Prince Charming, is being played by Senior, John Tomassi.
Senior, Cheyenne Cunning has designed all of the sets which have been assembled and ready for paint. Cunning hopes to make use of her exceptional artistic talent in the future with plans of studying a related field in college next year. Cunning will also play the role of the Wicket Step-Mother!
