Yet another mesmerizing example of Prince Street Players' aptitude for adaptation, CINDERELLA (Prince Street Players Version) is a magical retelling of a most beloved story.
A godmother, of the fairy variety, inquires of her two helpers about the neediest case in the kingdom. Not surprisingly, they introduce her to Ella, who, after being orphaned, was left in the care of her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Forced to use the kitchen as a bedroom, Ella can often be found daydreaming among the cinders from the fireplace, inspiring her stepfamily to rename her "Cinderella." Wand in hand, Godmother sets about to change the girl's life. With a dash of belief, a sprinkle of magic, and a pinch of true love, Cinderella has her life changed for good.
The iconic rags to riches story told with side-splitting slapstick is a tuneful, fast-paced piece that will enthrall audiences of all ages. Perfect for groups of all shapes and sizes, the English pantomime style comedy and direct asides to the audience is especially appreciated by younger patrons.
