Stepp Stewart’s “Cindy, the musical,” featuring the 17-piece African American Philharmonic Orchestra, had another successful run at the Porter Sanford Center for the Performing Arts in Decatur.

The musical, which was staged Feb. 17-18, is set in Harlem 1943. Cindy is reunited with her father after traveling from down South to meet her new stepmother and sisters. She quickly finds herself in a house full of mean-spirited relatives who don’t give her the reception she is expecting. Cindy rises above bullying and low self-esteem as she never stops believing in love and happiness. Based on the 1978 television special of the same name, Cindy is a different kind of Cinderella story now adapted for the stage.

David Manuel, executive director of the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center, said during an interview that the musical had packed audiences for its opening day. Take a listen to the YouTube interview at On Common Ground News (Official) Facebook page.
