The first rehearsal of “Cinderella” became a magical reality last Tuesday night, with more than 20 performers learning their lines and becoming acquainted with their characters.
Some are totally new to the acting world while others bring their experience and knowledge.
Wendy Judson, the director and writer of the play, has years of experience in theatre arts. Helping her out are assistant director Jean Boileau and stage manager Cathy Richards, both of whom also bring along expert advice and helpful tips.
This team will offer a stellar show which no one will want to miss. The audience will be thrilled with the script and find the evening highly entertaining.
It will be a real family night. Adults and children alike will be mesmerized by the fantasy of the fairy tale as it comes to life.
The children will fall in love with the character, “Buttons” (Brian Haggarty), who will interact and humour the audience all night. And the two ugly stepsisters—played by Jason Kabel and Rory Ryan—are sure to steal the show.
In the English pantomime version of “Cinderella,” some of the genders are switched in order to add comedy while allowing an extension of your imagination.
“Cinderella,” played by Cara Coran, will dazzle everyone at the ball, including those of you who don’t believe in fantasy. Prince Charming will be a surprise to all—along with a few other surprises during the evening.
In England, the show is performed on Boxing Day as a special event.
Here, Fort Frances Little Theatre wishes to bring Boxing Day to everyone on Feb. 24-26, along with a Sunday matinee Feb. 27.
