King University News :: King University Presents "The True Story of Cinderella" April 12

BRISTOL, Tenn., March 4, 2014 – King University’s Music Department will present “The True Story of Cinderella” by Warren Martin as part of Dogwood Weekend, the University’s annual alumni celebration. The event will take place in Memorial Chapel on King’s Bristol campus on Saturday, April 12 at 2:30 p.m.

“This work is a spoof of the traditional fairy tale,” said W. Patrick Flannagan, professor of Music and director of choral activities at King University. “Full of clichés and wonderfully original music, the piece is performed by 12 solo singers, a narrator, and an accompanist.”

The production’s narrator is Assistant Professor of English Brandon Story, and the accompanist is Senior Lecturer in Music Vicki Fey. The programs singers include senior Martha Hawk, senior Adam McCracken, senior Candace Whitner, senior Michelle Hall, senior Alissa King, senior Aaron Pena, freshman Brady Adams, sophomore Nathan Jones, senior Tyler Kistner, 2013 alumnus Brandon Looney, Rachel Milligan, lecturer in Music, and Marjy Larson.
