Cinderella's Glass Slipper

Peoria, Arizona Theater Works - Peoria Center for the Performing Arts Resident Youth Theatre Company presents Cinderella's Glass Slipper, opening Friday April 25, 2014. 

Cinderella works hard in the home of her cruel stepmother. Her silly stepsisters, Brunhilda and Cleopatra, see themselves as beautiful and think the prince will marry them. Of course, the handsome prince spends most of the evening at a palace ball trying to escape from them! The story is ages old, but you'll meet playful new characters in this fresh adaptation: a brave mice, a hesitant cat and the amazing Pumpkinhead, who changes into a coach! Our Fairy Godmother has her hands full tutoring an apprentice but still makes time for Cinderella. Amazing (yet simple!) stage magic sends our heroine off to the palace ball. As we know, she loses her glass slipper as she tries to run out before the clock strikes midnight. As the ladies of the kingdom try to fit into the crystal shoe, the prince finally finds the girl he is to marry. This well-known classic is filled with songs by Bill Francoeur that create their own magic, such as the prologue 'Once Upon a Time,' the stepsisters' 'Ladies of Fashion' and Cinderella's 'Dream of Tomorrow.

Cinderella's Glass Slipper, is directed by Jason Washburn and features a talented cast of over 30 young actors.The stage version is based on the classic fairytale. The production features musical direction by Jennifer Whiting and choreography by Alicia Cardoza.
