Act 1 will have a few local celebrities including Chad Sabadie anchor for WGMB, Elizabeth Vowel anchor for WAFB, Bill and Karen Profita with Talk 107.5, with community leaders Abby and Milk Aaron, and Guy Blanchard. The major role Clara will be played by Angelique Francois and her Prince Jared Gremillion. There are 45 party children, and 88 in the entire cast. 
Cangelosi has beautifully choreographed each scene in Act 1 party scene into young girl dreaming of her Prince who saves her from the battle scene created by Stuart Poulton and leads her to the land of sweets for Act II. 
This production will produce the true spirit by giving joy through the soul of music, dance and story with family and friends.
