Zigner said this year's show, "Christina and the Crystal Ball, a Cinderella Story for the Social Net Set," was inspired by the traditional 15th anniversary gift, crystal.
Cinderella becomes Christina, an office drone dreaming of dancing under a disco ball in the show, written by Follies director John Vaughan. He is joined by longtime show associate producer Lois Augustine in bringing the magic to life. This year's co-chairs are Leslie Cancellieri, Sandy Segerstrom Daniels and Dale Skiles.
Zigner said the production will star a Broadway veteran, April Malina. Malina's past credits include the international Broadway touring productions of "Miss Saigon" and "Hair," and a voiceover repertoire in commercials, movies and television shows.
Performances will be at 8 p.m. March 29, 8 p.m. March 30, and 2 and 8 p.m. March 31 at the Robert B. Moore Theatre on the Orange Coast College campus in Costa Mesa.
Tickets are $35 and $65 for the Thursday night and Saturday matinee shows. Tickets are $50, $75 and $125 for Friday and Saturday night performances; the $125-rate includes admission to a post-show cast party.
The proceeds from the 2012 production will go toward construction of The Voice. Conceived by the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, The Voice will be an interactive media center for patients at CHOC to express their creative sides in various activities related to broadcast media. It is slated to open in 2013 in the hospital's new seven-story tower, organizers said.
