“Twinderella the Musical” is the laughable story of Cinderella’s long lost twin brother named Bob who lives in the same kingdom with his own wicked stepfamily.  The separated siblings have enlisted the services of the Fairy Godmother, the Godfather (he ain’t no fairy!)  and two enchanted gerbils to help wile their way into the exclusive royal festivities of Wychwood-under-Ooze.  Bob has his sights set on Prince Percy’s all-kingdom baseball game, while Cinderella eyes the birthday gala for Princess Petunia.  When the two strangers disappear at midnight after Cinderella hits a game winning homerun, the search is on to find the feet that fit the glass slipper and the muddy cleat!  This hilarious musical send-up of “Cinderella” will delight family audiences of every age.  If you’re a fan of Shrek the Musical, you’ll love “Twinderella the Musical”. 


The show will be performed by 27 area 4th-12th grade students.  Characters include Twinderella played by Grace Smith (Lakeshore High School), Bob played by Patrick Hill (Lakeshore High School), Fairy Godmother played by Maddie Schrock (Upton Middle School), Godfather played by Craig Wells (Upton Middle School), Stepmother played by Carmen Smith (Upton Middle School) and Stepfather played by Bryce McNeil (Homeschooled).
