Children’s theater production returns to NWC this spring

A classic tale with an important twist is coming to Northwest College Friday and Saturday, April 20-21, in the Nelson Performing Arts Auditorium.

The production of “Cinderella! Cinderella!” will be performed for children invited from a 100-mile radius by adult actors and actresses; however, there will be two public performances of the play. The two shows get underway April 20 at 6:30 p.m. and April 21 at 2 p.m.

The production is a variation of the timeless tale with one distinct difference. When Prince Charming comes to Cinderella’s house in search of the owner of the glass slipper, she asks her Fairy Godmother for nice clothes to wear in front of the prince. To Cinderella’s surprise, the Fairy Godmother tells her “no” and that she must impress the prince as she is. 

Each performance is 45 minutes long. Admission is $2.50 per ticket to cover production costs.

For more information about the play, contact Fred Ebert, NWC assistant professor and communication division chair, at fred.ebert@nwc.edu or 307-754-6047.
