A2CT's Junior Theatre presents 'Cinderella: The Untold Story'

By Staff

In this silly take on the classic fairy tale, the real Cinderella, along with Prince Chip, must prove they are the rightful heirs to the Kingdom amid fakes who vie for the positions. A fairy tale “fixer” named O’Reilly tells the untold story of how Ella and Chip fall in “like” and must save the Kingdom from imposters.

“This adaptation of Cinderella is wonderful,” Mull said in a press release. “The girl characters as well as the boys determine their own destinies, and the characters who are trying to appropriate the throne are merely misguided, not evil. The appearance of characters from other fairy tales—Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and The Little Mermaid, among others—adds an element of recognition that will delight kids as well as their parents.”

"Cinderella: The Untold Story" features Sabina Fall as Ella, Henry Schirmer as Chip, and Emily Waters as O’Reilly. The cast also includes Daniel Tramp, Madeline Qi, Bella Bates, Anneka Hallstrom, Lucie Roy, Hannah Harshe, Nathan Thomas, Caroline Logue, Alais Murillo, Alyssa Gilson, Gracie O’Brien, Caroline Mull, Bonnie Gordon, Janie Harshe, Mary Collins, Isabella Giviyan, Tess Borneman, Trevor Knight, Drew Flattery, Trip Apley, and Bairton Warburton-Brown.
