CINDY ALBERTINI has directed, choreographed and performed in various professional and regional theatres in states from Virginia to Massachusetts for more years than she would like to count. Some highlights from her production career include Jekyll & Hyde, Little Shop of Horrors, The Drowsy Chaperone, West Side Story, Singin’ in the Rain, and yes Beauty and the Beast. In her former performing life, favorite roles include Eva Peron (Evita), Lina Lamont (Singin’ in the Rain), Fanny Brice (Funny Girl) and Cassie (A Chorus Line). (Although some Candlelight audiences may have recently caught a glimpse of her in their recent production of Fiddler on the Roof as Yente the Matchmaker.) She has also worked as a dance teacher and performance coach to competitive skaters. Cindy offers thanks to the Candlelight family who always make her feel welcome, and to Bob and Max for their hours of assistance. She is extremely grateful for her good fortune in receiving the gifts of an extremely giving and talented cast. And last but certainly not least: to her female production trio, with kudos to both Jody Anderson and Betsy Conner for their collaboration and humor, and mostly their wonderful skills and creativity.
