2 April 2012 - Nashville, Tenn - The anticipation is building for Show Hope's™ presentation of the classic musical, Rodgers And Hammerstein's Cinderella, Enchanted Edition. The third annual Show Hope Spring Celebration is ready to hit the Schermerhorn Symphony stage on Thursday, April 12th.

To help advance Show Hope's™ mission of caring for the most pressing needs of orphans around the world and to commemorate the life of Maria Sue Chapman, a star-studded cast is teaming up with the Nashville Symphony for this "one-night-only" concert performance will again offer colorful costumes, a flourish of makeup, a dash of dancing, and a good measure of magic. Show Hope founders Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman dreamed for years about creating a major entertainment event for Nashville, wanting to be able to give back to the supporting community as well as to serve as a platform to celebrate and illuminate the mission of Show Hope and for the third year in a row, their dream will again become a reality.

Show Hope's Spring Celebration of Cinderella again features Steven Curtis Chapman as Executive Producer and Studio Tenn's Matt Logan as Director. The lead role of Cinderella and the Prince will be performed by Broadway stars Jessica Grove? (Les Miserables, Thoroughly Modern Millie) and Ryan Silverman (Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story). Joining them on stage will be Jodi Benson, the original voice of Ariel from Disney's "The Little Mermaid," returning to the Schermerhorn stage as the Fairy Godmother. Country superstar Linda Davis will play the Queen and the role of the King will be reprised once again by Gary Morris, who starred on Broadway as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables. Jake Speck and Nan Gurley return for the third time in their unforgettable roles, Speck as the steward Lionel and Gurley as the Stepmother. Melissa Doolittle, who became a household name on season six of "American Idol," will play Stepsister Joy, and Bridget Berger, from Broadway's Jersey Boys, will play the role of Stepsister Grace.

About Show Hope:
A ministry founded by Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman to help care for the millions of orphans around the world, Show Hope helps to provide waiting orphans with forever families by giving financial grants to adoptive families. To date, Show Hope is now an internationally recognized voice for orphan advocacy and has given more than 3,000 financial grants, affecting the lives of children from 50 different countries, including the U.S. In addition to giving financial grants, Show Hope also empowers families, churches and communities with adoption and orphan care resources and advocacy efforts to change the world for orphans.

Show Hope, expanding its remarkable worldwide impact, also provides for orphans with special needs in China through its Special Care Centers. One of these centers is Maria's Big House of Hope, a six-story healing home facility located in Luoyang, China. Opened in the summer of 2009, its mission is to provide the highest level of care for orphans who are in desperate need of surgeries and medical attention, thus enabling the children to thrive and increase the orphans' chances of being adopted. Additional centers have opened in the Henan province of China, operating in two state-run orphanages as an extension of the care being provided at Maria's Big House of Hope.
