Dreaming up a Fairy Tale

On Wednesday, we draw the curtain on Cinderella. Over the course of the Winter Trimester, director Annelise Nielsen has worked with 12 actors to bring to life this classic tale in a new way. Drawing from a variety of theatrical styles, our production features shadow puppetry, musical numbers, elements of British panto, and the magic flexibility of a dream. Cinderella

A simple playroom transforms into a small house, a castle, a forest, and back again as 11 girls are whisked away in their dreams into the fairy tale of Cinderella, by way of her fairy godmother. Walls come to life, chandeliers change color, and the very elements of the room find their way to being costumes. Magic is everywhere, powered by imagination and audience interaction.

Shows are Wednesday – Saturday, Feb. 19-22, at 3:30 p.m. in the Williston Theater. Tickets are free for Williston Northampton students, and $5.00 general admission. They can be purchased online or at the door. We can’t wait to share this story with you!
