Sometimes it can be hard to believe in princesses and pumpkin carriages. You want to reach for your magic wand and check the house for glass slippers, but real life tends to claim your attention. This year was especially daunting for Camden Hills, as well as many other high schools in the area, thanks to an early winter storm which cancelled school for three days during the final week of rehearsal. But, the show must go on, and Cinderella not only is up and running well, but touching us with a bit of fairy dust along the way. Of course, it's really a story about transformation. Let's see some "before and after" photos.
