TheatreOne’s Just Kidding for Kids presents the second play in its series for children and families, the classic fairy tale Cinderella. This adaptation by Dufflebag Theatre Company will be performed at VIU’s Malaspina Theatre on Saturday, February 10 at 1pm.
Cinderella’s life is storybook perfect until she is forced into servitude for her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Things just might change for our heroine with a little magical help from her Fairy Godmother. Is Cinderella destined for a “happily ever after”? If the shoe fits…
School audiences rave about the show, which has toured across BC and Alberta. “DuffleBag Theatre performers were outstanding… Students and staff laughed, cheered, booed and enjoyed the performance from start to finish,” said Cathy Bowles, the Principal at Wiltse Elementary School, in Penticton.
Todd Lindsay, Principal at Naramata Elementary School, said: “They did a great job captivating all students with a fairytale and by including students in the production. I have not heard our students laugh at a performance as much as they did with this one. They are still talking about how good it was today!!”
Nanaimo family audiences will be talking too after seeing this energetic and entertaining performance. Tickets are $12 each, or two for $20, available at theatreone.org or 250-754-7587.
