A Remake on a “Glass”ic Fairytale
Written by Shatina L. Owens
Cameron, SC- A spin on the classic fairytale Cinderella called “Cinderella’s Glass Slipper” will be hosted by the students of the Performing Arts Youth Center at the Cameron Auditorium in early August.
The production is based on the same components as the classic fairytale such as the evil stepmother and stepsisters, fairy godmother, and charming prince, tied in with a chorus and comedic scenes. According to thetandd.com, musical director Peggy Hirth said the stage production will be brought to life with the traditional features of Cinderella topped off with the prince locating his soon-to-be princess using her missing glass slipper.
“We have a wonderful cast. The children are amazing and are doing a great job. The audience will love the show because it’s so adorable,” Hirth said.
What makes this spinoff of the beloved classic so special is an added character alongside the fairy godmother as well as an adorable feline and dancing little mice.
“The fairy godmother has a little apprentice who works with her and is a great, cute little part,” Hirth said. “We have little 3- to 5-year-olds who are in the show, and we have about 11 of those little children playing little mice. They also have a featured song in the show. We also have a little girl who plays Atilla the Cat, and a head mouse with a little dance that’s very cute.”
The summer camp session began July 7 which included the 40-member cast ranging from ages 3-15 who attended the camp.
Cameron Auditorium is located on Highway 33 where the performance will begin at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 8-9, and 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 10.
Ticket prices are $11 for adults and $9 for seniors and children 12 and under. Tickets can also be bought at the door.
