"Our Summer Show is a combination of adult and children acting. This year we chose "Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother's Spell" by Edith Weiss. Thanks to Edith's clear, simple and yet hilarious directions the play was not only easy and fun to direct, it offered both our older and younger actors fun parts. Equally important it resulted in an evening of so much laughter that our audiences complained that their jaws hurt."
By Cindy - Director - Colorado ACTS
"We chose this delightful play because it’s entertaining for both adults and children."
By Mary Long, Drama Coach, Dominion Academy, Leesburg, VA
"What a wonderful way to show children, especially girls, they can do anything they set their minds to. You don't have to be 10 years old to enjoy it. Like the movie Shrek, this production appeals to all ages."
By Mary Land, Drama Director, Dominion Academy, Lovettsville, VA
What if Cinderella's problems aren't solved by a Fairy Godmother, but she has to work on them herself? This Fairy Godmother gets her to the ball, but Cinderella has to find the courage to stand up to her sisters. What if the Prince wasn't just a cipher but a painfully shy person? This play is about friendship and the realization that magic wands don't fix everything. It's also really funny-the moral doesn't hit you over the head, the story tells it. I've been told it's the funniest Cinderella people have seen.
