Today’s Cinderella spotlight is on the princess herself- meet senior EMMA DAHLIN, who plays the title role!
“I do theatre because I have always had an incredible passion for it. I love how far a role can take you, while remembering you are still yourself. It is exceptionally rewarding throughout the whole process of auditions, rehearsals, and performances. I love every part of it.”
“Cinderella will forever be a classic and timeless story. It speaks to the child within all of us, the child that dreams without limits.”
