MET & The Fun Company to Present CINDERELLA, 4/16-5/15

Maryland Ensemble Theatre (MET) and the Fun Company are bringing magic to the theatre with the performance of Cinderella. Watch dreams come true for one young girl with the help of her magical Fairy Godmother, some fairy dust and a little bit of hope starting April 16 going to May 15 (Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30 p.m.).

The story of Cinderella was first published in 1634 and has been adapted numerous times throughout the years, including works by the Brother's Grimm, Rossini, Prokofiev, Rogers and Hammerstein, and of course the classic Disney film. The oldest documented version comes from China and the oldest European documented version hails from Italy. Julie Herber, Fun Company Artistic Director at MET, is a founding member of Theatricks, who made a musical adaption of the classic folk tale and will be bringing it to our second stage. This sprightly musical version of the beloved classic fairy tale will enchant audiences of all ages. Under the sharp, menacing eyes of her Stepmother and Stepsisters, will Cinderella ever get to dance with the Prince? With her fearless charm, kind heart and a little bit of help from her Fairy Godmother, she just might! But will she make it home before the clock strikes twelve? And who will the slipper fit? The show will feature original music and lyrics by Meryl Cullom. The show is best suited for ages five and up.

This alluring spectacle of Cinderella would not be be possible without our lovely cast. Cinderella will be played by Shelly Hierstetter, Prince Champion by Daniel Valentine-Morales, The Fairy Godmother by Surasree Das, The Stepmother by Laura Stark, Trillvia (stepsister) by Amanda Spellman, Shrillvia (stepsister) by Caitlyn Joy and Lord Roland by Thomas Scholtes. The talented ensemble will be directed by the wand of Julie Herber, who will also be choreographing. To assist Herber will be stage manager Lydia Hadfield, musical director Jennie Huntoon, set designer Rachel Grant Smith, costume designer Cody Gilliam and lighting designer Giovanni Kavota.

On top of being entranced in this marvelous display of triumph, MET and the Fun Company will be hosting a day of pampering and a little bit of bippity boppity fun. On April 23 after the 1:30 show, there will be a tea party with the princess herself at Princess Day Spa. Each guest will join Cinderella on a trip to the spa where they will get to dress up in princess clothes, get a wand and a tiara, have a photo taken with Cinderella and then enjoy a tea party with her. At the tea party, there will be small refreshments including chips, animal crackers and pink lemonade. Hurry though, the clock will strike twelve for this extravagant afternoon. Reservations are required by April 15 in order to be put on Cinderella's guest list and there are only 15 spots available. The cost for tea party is $20 and the cost for the show is $14 for a total of $34 for the package and the adults are $14.
