For Kids of all ages: Emerald City’s “Cinderella”

cindypage 

Emerald City Theatre‘s new whacky musical adaptation, Cinderella, with book and lyrics by Alyn Cardarelli (Artistic Director of Emerald City Theatre), music by Steve Goers and direction by Aritistic Associate Matthew Gunnels, opens tomorrow (February 14th) and runs through May 24th.  From Emerald City’s flyer:

Anybody who’s anybody is going to the Royal Ball.  Anybody that is except Cinderalla, whose feet are such an unusual size there are no shoes to fit them.  But with the help of a fairy godmother, a little sword fighting and some sensible footwear, a happy ending is certainly in sight! This adaptation, designed to appeal to both boys and girls, is full of audience interaction!  Children are invited to meet the actors after each weekend performance.  (stress mine)

Sounds like a lot of fun to me!  I always get a kick out of the raw response one gets from an audience filled with kids – and their eager interaction with the actors.  Priceless.

One more cool thing: you can download preview songs from Cinderella  here.

Sunday Night Sondheim – Disney version
