SYNOPSIS: Help! The local high school drama teacher wrote his own version of Cinderella by combining the Princess's tale with the story of Frankenstein, but the production is bombing: The Fairy Godmother wants to be called the Fairy Goshmother, three new stepsisters must be added to the cast, several actors quit, and the extras are fed up with being extras. Then, after being forced to play a girl, one of the boys worries that if his father, an avid sports fanatic, sees him his acting career will be over. Despite the director's explicit instructions that the Prince's Ball scene must be slow and elegant, the cast speeds it up to super-speed so that the boy won't be seen, but the actress playing the Queen is incapable of improvisation and can't keep up. When Dr. Frankenstein drops Cinderella's brain and replaces it with a cat's brain instead, this insane production changes beyond even the director's recognition.

"It was a lot of fun. We did this as our freshman and sophomore play. I loved the fact that there were 33 characters WITH LINES already spelled out in the show. So many plays for large casts have people on stage but no lines. I loved how often all the characters were on stage and how many lines everyone got."
By Jeff Harding - Director - Mundelein High School
"This was one of the best plays we have ever produced! The comments and feedback from the audience were unbelievable. It was easy to produce and had the audience laughing the entire time."
By Rebecca Owen - director - Shattuck High School
"The Dieterich High School Drama Club performed Cinderstein in April of 2011 and it was a huge success and the show was a blast to perform! It was a great play to involve several students and was excellent for the half of our cast making their acting debut! The way the play was written, the audience had no clue of the things that went wrong. It played right into the story line. It was buzzed about for weeks after the curtain closed. It is going to be hard to top this one!"
By Devin McManaway - Director - Dieterich High School Drama Club
