January 26th, 2011 by Sean Keeley

Following a nine-year hiatus, Kent Stowell’s Cinderella makes a long-anticipated return for its McCaw Hall debut with the Pacific Northwest Ballet. Choreographer Kent Stowell’s show, drawn from the original French fairy tale, features 50 professional dancers in both dramatic and comedic roles, live orchestra and more than 100 elaborately detailed costumes set against vast storybook backdrops.

It also features a talented, young dancer from Fremont.

Third-grader Anika Thomas will be performing the role of Memory Child in the show. She is one of sixty-two children from Pacific Northwest Ballet School performing in 32 roles.

Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Cinderella premiered in May, 1994 and the Company has toured the production to California, Arizona, and Edmonton and Calgary, Canada. It was last performed in Seattle in 2002 at the Mercer Arts Arena.
