Over the next couple weeks, I will be featuring specific cast, crew, and orchestra members from Cinderella on the blog. The spotlight today is on senior ROB DENDY, who plays Prince Charming!
“Theatre provides me a release from the “real world.” Having the opportunity to leave my own life and tune out earthly distractions through performing is incredibly liberating, especially for a very restless and distractible teenager.”
“Cinderella appeals to every age group, because everyone is capable of dreaming. To me, it’s an inspirational story that proves life is what you make of it; we all have control of our attitude.”
Rob’s Experience with Theatre:
Rob is no stranger to the E.C. Glass stage(s). His first role of Young Tommy in the rock opera Tommy was in 2003! Since then, he has appeared in The Nutcracker for four years as a Party Child, The Nutcracker one year as Fritz, The Music Man as Winthrop, A Midsummer Night’s Dream as a Sprite, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat as Benjamin, The Pirates of Penzance as a Pirate, Lysistrata as an Athenian male, and Bang Bang You’re Dead as the Shadow. Rob also played Billy Ray in The Academy of Fine Arts’s On Golden Pond.
More About Rob:
“In my free time I enjoy traveling, watching sports documentaries, playing pickup basketball games, ping pong, and going to bed before 10 PM–when possible.”
Cinderella open night is coming up soon on February 20th. Online ticketing is now available so make sure and get those reservation in!
