WEST ORANGE, NJ – The Liberty Middle School production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” provided a family-friendly night out as some of West Orange’s rising stars sing and danced their way into the audience’s hearts.

A cast and crew of more than 25 students worked for months under director Cynthia Rowberg, who also serves as Vocal Director and Costume Designer. Matthew Schmidt is the accompanist/pianist, Kim Carissimo is Choreographer and art teacher Lissette Villalobos designed the sets, posters, banners and T-shirts.

The show featured two Cinderellas: Riah DeVera on May 4 and Veena Steaphen on May 5.
