The magical rags-to-riches story is told through side-splitting slapstick and unforgettable tunes.
Yet another mesmerizing example of The Prince Street Players' aptitude for adaptation, Cinderella (Prince Street Players Version) is a magical retelling of a most beloved story and a tuneful, fast-paced piece, specifically created to perform for young audiences. The English pantomime-style comedy and direct asides to the audience are especially appreciated by younger patrons.
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.
An ideal choice for any theatre company that has family-based audiences, Cinderella (Prince Street Players Version) has a flexible cast size, which makes it an effective show to tour or stage in one location. As with all of The Prince Street Players' shows, the materials include spectacularly detailed costume designs, prop descriptions and stage notes, should they be needed by the creative team.
It there a rehearsal/performance CD available? The Prince Street Players website mentions it is, but I don't see it listed as a resource through MTI. Would we need to go through their website for that?
