Cinderella

Rob Herriot

DIRECTOR

Canadian Stage director Rob Herriot is thrilled to be coming back to the Rainbow Stage family to direct this production of Cinderella, following last summer’s production of Beauty and the Beast. Rob did his very first show with Rainbow Stage back in 1985. Since that first magical time he returned to the company in various ways – as an ensemble member, apprentice stage manager and principal character playing the roles of Joe Cable in South Pacific (1997) and Jacey Squires in The Music Man (1998). He credits Rainbow Stage with being one of the major influences in his career. Rob’s primary work is in opera where he has directed productions across North America.
