“Impossible things are happening every day!” sings the Godmother in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s musical fairy tale “Cinderella” and impossible things will happen when young performers at Windham Center Stage Theater bring this timeless tale to life in March.

First seen as a television spectacular in 1957, and remade for television in 1965 and 1997, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” spins its own version of the traditional story, woven through with such beloved songs as “In My Own Little Corner,” “Ten Minutes Ago” and “Impossible.”

With the script and score lovingly adapted for elementary and middle school performers, this classic seems as fresh today. After all, even if we know the story by heart, we still hold our breath until we are sure that the slipper fits.

Windham Center Stage is a community theater serving the Sebago Lakes Region. The theater produces the only children’s show in the area in which every child receives a part. “Cinderella” is directed by Mary Wassick, music directed by Diane Hancock, and features more than 75 local children in two fantastic casts.

The magical journey runs March 9-25 on stage at the Windham Town Hall. Shows will be performed Friday evenings at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 2 and 7 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. All seats must be reserved. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and $5 for children under 5. Call 893?2098 to reserve tickets.
