a delightful TWIST by Alexandra Grace Gaver
(For Professional, Educational an Amateur. Tours well)
Gather around young princes and princesses, for the story of Cinderella… but this isn’t the fairy tale you remember! Due to a fairy godmother mix up, Cinderella’s magical trip to the ball does not go as planned. Join one of your favorite princesses as she helps her friends (with some assistance from the audience) get their Happily Ever After and make it home before midnight. An exciting and interactive show that’s great for boys and girls of all ages. The twists and updates to this classic will have your audiences in stitches, and yet learning all about themselves at the same time. A Children’s Theatre of Hampton Roads Playscript.
This play has a slight restriction on its performance. The Children’s Theatre of Hampton Roads is the only company that many perform the play in the following cities in Virginia: Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Newport News and Hampton.

Cinderella – The classic fairy tale princess, she is very lonely and is convinced that once she meets her prince, everything will fall into place and she’ll live happily ever after.
The Fairy Godmother – The magical fairy tasked to help Cinderella. She’s a hipster who TOTALLY does not have time for this.
Little Red Riding Hood – A little girl on her way to her grandmother’s house. She’s full of energy, sarcasm, and in the words of her own mother “a little creepy.”
Jack – From Jack and the Beanstalk – a very poor, VERY stupid young man. A bit of a yokel.
The Prince – The classic fairy tale prince.
