A New Take on Cinderella

Feb 28, 2014 | Fine Arts, Middle School News, Uncategorized

After being rescheduled two times due to snow days, audiences were finally able to enjoy the performances of talented Middle School students in Cinderella’s Shakespeare on February 20.
Cinderella labors away for her wicked aunt and evil cousins, sneaking free moments whenever she can to read. Her aunt believes learning just monopolizes the time a woman can spend being beautiful and burns all the books in their cottage. Cinderella manages to save a copy of โ€œRomeo and Juliet,โ€ but eventually even that is burned. With a little help from a silly fairy godmother, Cinderella attends a palace ball and impresses the Prince with her intellect. After she flees the ball, the Prince pursues her, looking not for a woman who can fit in a slipper, but one who can complete his Shakespearean quote. He finds her, learns her true name, and they live happily ever after.
The talented cast included: Tabitha Nagy, Eliza Bruno, Katie Goodwyn, Grace Strickland, Ethan Ray, Ori Chambliss, Eleanor Madderra, Anna Weber, Charlotte Nickell, Spencer Schwock, Ella Uhde, Carson Will, Kylie Smith-Wolfe, Jack McGuire, Jenny Long and Skylar Stefaniak-Earley
