Thursday – Saturday at 6:15pm, Sunday at 11:45am and 5:15pm: Man Of La Mancha Come “Dream the Impossible Dream” with this five-time Tony award-winning musical! Inspired by one of the greatest novels of all time, Man of La Mancha features Miguel de Cervantes who channels the power of storytelling to enact his magical tale of the greatest knight of all. Don Quixote – the slayer of dragons, windmills and defender of ladies in distress. On a quest to restore chivalry to the world and to claim his lady love, Don Quixote and his trusty sidekick Sancho, remind us all to never give up – that miracles happen – and we can reach the stars. Runs until May 1st. Westchester Broadway Theatre, Elmsford.

Thursday – Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 3pm: The Kennedy Catholic Players is pleased to present the 2013 Broadway version of Cinderella. The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley An Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. Reservations are highly recommended! Ticket prices at the door are $20. John F. Kennedy Catholic, Somers.
