__________________________________________

                                        PEARL HARBOR DAY

We remember and honor the 2,403 Americans, service members and civilians, who were killed in the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941, which led to the United States declaring war on Japan the next day and thus entering World War II. On Pearl Harbor Day, the American flag should be flown at half-staff until sunset. Pearl Harbor Day is not a federal holiday – government offices, schools, and businesses do not close. Some organizations may hold special events in memory of those killed or injured at Pearl Harbor. 81 years later, it is still called  “a day that will live in infamy”,  coined in a speech by Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd president of the United States, to a joint session of Congress on December 8, 1941.

December 7 to 24- A Timeless Classic:  The Musical “Cinderella”!

The Wick Theatre Casts a Magical Spell with Classic Rodgers & Hammerstein Musical Cinderella

7:30pm-The Wick Theatre in Boca Raton is delighted to present the timeless classic Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, just in time for the holidays. This retelling of the timeless romantic fairy tale has music and lyrics by Rodgers and Hammerstein and some twists you won’t see coming! Written by these two legendary Broadway songwriters who brought you The Sound of Music, Oklahoma! and South Pacific, the musical fairytale is filled with marvelous melodies and heartfelt lyrics. An enchanting experience for the entire family, Cinderella runs until December 24, 2022, with evening shows on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and matinees on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are $79-$99 and are available at www.thewick.org or by calling the box office at 561-995-2333.

“More than just a glittering ball gown and glass slippers, this stunning adaptation was nominated for nine Tony Awards!” said Marilynn A. Wick, Executive Managing Producer. “Presented in the inimitable Wick style, with elaborate costumes and sumptuous sets, this beloved fairytale is the perfect fit for the holiday season.” Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella was originally written for television, debuting in 1957 starring Julie Andrews and then remade in versions starring Leslie Ann Warren (1965) and later with pop singer Brandy (1997). In 2013, the show made its long-overdue Broadway debut with a new book by Douglas Carter Beane, while retaining the cherished score including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It’s Possible,” “Ten Minutes Ago” and “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?”

For this production, The Wick welcomes back Broadway Director Norb Joerder, who’s helmed over a dozen shows at the Wick including last season’s blockbuster Gypsy, as well as Music Director-to-the-stars Bobby Peaco and the choreographer for this season’s Milk and Honey, Oren Korenblum. Stepping into the famous glass slippers are two acclaimed performers Carbonell winner Mallory Newbrough and Daniella Mass, who starred as Eva Peron in The Wick’s production of Evita. With her stunning presence and bewitching voice, she was the perfect choice to lead a cast of 25 professional actors from New York, L.A. and beyond!   (The show runs until December 24)

The Wick Theater is located at 7901 N. Federal Highway. Boca Raton, Florida 33487  For tickets: www.thewick.org or at 561-995-2333.
