DESCRIPTION: This brand new non-musical adaptation of Cinderella and The Little Snow-white brings to life two of the most popular fairy tales of all time. Adapted and directed by Jim Banar and designed for the Newtown Theatre stage, these tales of splendor, whimsy, heartbreak, and unpredictable fright are plainspoken; yet as irresistibly compelling as were the oral tales passed down through the ages by storytellers. It was this strong oral tradition of ancient, oft-told tales that bound people–young and old alike–together through their common experiences. And those common experiences are shared by everyone: disputes between parents and children; women who are persecuted; oppression of young people; abandoned children; innocence rewarded; human greed denied. Innocence will be tested and kindness rewarded. Come, join our fairy tale world of Kings and Wicked Queens; Anthropomorphic trees; Magic Mirrors; Poisonous Apples; Wicked Stepmothers; Handsome Princes; Mean Step-sisters; Magical Trees; Helpful Birds; and, of course, at least Seven Dwarfs.
