Twinderella by Spotlight on Youth

Twinderella by Spotlight on Youth

Did you know that Cinderella has a long lost twin brother named Bob living in the same kingdom with his own wicked stepfamily? The separated siblings have enlisted the services of the Fairy Godmother, the Godfather (he ain’t no fairy!) and two enchanted gerbils to help wile their way into the exclusive royal festivities of Wychwood-under-Ooze. Bob has his sights set on Prince Percy’s all-kingdom baseball game, while Cinderella eyes the birthday gala for Princess Petunia. When the two strangers disappear at midnight after Cinderella hits a game winning homerun, the search is on to find the feet that fit the glass slipper and the muddy cleat!

Spotlight Players

Jazz In The Key of Life

The Swing City Big Band is proud to present our new program, Jazz in the Key of Life. If this sounds familiar there is good reason. Inspired by both Stevie Wonder for his album and a recent program presented by Wynton Marsalis we would like to borrow the concept of performing popular songs in a new style. In this performance we will perform popular songs throughout history. Sit back and enjoy your favorite songs, past and present, while we take a trip down memory lane. If you have any requests please see one of us during intermission and if we have it, we will do our best to add it for you to enjoy the second half of our show.

Approx. run time: 2 hrs. 15 min. (includes intermission).
