UWL Theatre’s SummerStage performing 'Cinderella'
The UWL Department of Theatre and Dance presents its SummerStage production of the magical musical fairytale, “Cinderella.” As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the romantic fairy tale warms the hearts of children and adults alike. “Cinderella” runs at 7:30 p.m. June 23-24 and matinees at 2 on Jun 24-25 in Toland Theatre, Lowe Center for the Arts, 333 N. 16th St.
Inspired by the acclaimed 1997 ABC TV remake starring Whitney Houston and Brandy, “Cinderella (Enchanted Version)” features hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance and brings to life the miraculous kingdom where dreams come true. Cinderella, having lost both parents at a young age, dreams of a more fantastic life, but cannot escape the clutches of her stepmother and two stepsisters. Then, it is announced a royal ball is taking place and all maidens in the kingdom must attend. Despite the stepfamily’s best efforts, Cinderella makes it to the ball and meets the prince, with the help of her little animal friends and her Fairy Godmother. Cinderella is a timeless tale of overcoming the seemingly impossible with determination, faith, and a little bit of magic.
