STORYBOOK THEATER PRESENTS “CINDERELLA”
April 19 to May 18, 2008
(Kirkland, WA) StoryBook Theater is a group of adult professional actors who perform hilarious live musical fairytale
adaptations on stages throughout the Greater Puget Sound area.
StoryBook Theater’s next production, Cinderella, will be performed at the Kirkland Performance Center (April 19-27),
Everett PUD Auditorium (May 3 & 4), Seattle Museum of History & Industry (May 10) and Renton’s Carco Theater (May
17 & 18). April 20th performances in Kirkland will be ASL interpreted for the deaf. Tickets for these weekend matinees
are $8 (general seating) and are available online at www.StoryBookTheater.org or by calling 1-877-827-1100.
In this ever-popular StoryBook production, Cindy doesn’t want to go to the ball to meet the prince, but instead is interested in architecture,
so she would rather see the castle and examine how it was built. The Prince is tired and frustrated about his position at the castle – essentially,
he is for show. When he meets Cindy he discovers that he has found someone he can talk to, but since they haven’t been introduced and he’s
not dressed in “princely” attire, she doesn’t know that he is royalty. Her
fairy godmother, who she has mistaken for a homeless person, sings to her about not judging people by the way they look. Does this Cinderella
fi nally get to the palace ball in glass slippers? You will have to see the show to find out!
StoryBook Theater productions are imaginatively adapted from the classic versions and inspire children to understand unique life lessons
in a fun way that kids can understand and relate to. Created especially for children ages 3 to 10 and their families, the zany antics and songs of
StoryBook’s professional actors spellbind children -- the whole audience will be laughing hysterically at their madcap frolics! There is plenty of
humor for both young and old alike and with tons of audience interaction as well. These productions minimize the use of elaborate backdrops
and props on stage. Instead, backdrops are created from a very large “storybook” that has been craftily designed and painted with fun and
interesting images. A new scene occurs when each “page” of the book is turned.
Another wonderful thing about the StoryBook style is that all of the characters are lovable and the shows are never scary! Each show
contains tons of hilarious anecdotes with kid-friendly music and lyrics along with a memorable life-message to consider. The talented cast
encourages the audience to sing and dance along interactively. Patrons often say that even after they leave the theater, both adults and children
wind up singing these songs for years to come!
