The Fredericksburg Cinderella is set to take the stage this Thursday-Sunday, Aug. 7-9 in the Fredericksburg High School auditorium.
Director Bob Straus transformed Disney’s original Cinderella KIDS to “fit the kids” that are in the theatre arts camp.
“This is an unusual production of the play,” Straus said. “This is more of a Fredericksburg Cinderella. The story line is the same, I just added to it. We just added more spice.”
Straus added extra songs, additional parts and more dialogue in an attempt to get everyone a speaking part.
The play will feature 50 kids from ages four through 18 as part of Fredericksburg Independent School District’s Community Education program.
The original play was estimated to last 35 minutes. With the additions, the play has almost doubled in time.
The show on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 7-8, will begin at 7 p.m. with a matinee performance on Sunday, Aug. 9 at 2 p.m.
