You will fall in love with Cinderella’s neighbor, Edna, whose trip to the palace means a bus ride, comfortable loafers, and a very different happily ever after!
Cinder Edna lives next door to a famous girl you have probably heard of, Cinderella. Ella and Edna have cruel stepsisters, but they have different approaches to life’s journey. Cinder Edna has better things to do than sit in the ashes and feel sorry for herself and she doesn’t believe in Fairy Godmothers. She takes the bus to the ball AND she wears comfortable shoes. Although each ‘Cinder’ ends up with the prince of her dreams, one may be a great deal happier than the other. You decide.
This is a musical adaptation of the hilarious picture book by Ellen Jackson. Originally produced at Olympia Family Theater in 2013, the show was written and composed by a talented team of friends and collaborators. An all-new cast will sing and dance their way into your hearts and you are sure to leave the theater tapping your toes and maybe even craving some tuna casserole.
