“You won’t find another Cinderella
quite like this in Cincinnati!”
– The Children’s Theatre Of Cincinnati
It’s the time of year when we all seem to focus on our family and traditions. One of our family’s holiday traditions is The Children’s Theatre Of Cincinnati’s holiday show. This year’s show will prove to be very UNtraditional in itself though. Their holiday performance of Cinderella is not your mother’s Cinderella story. It’s a holiday “panto (or pantomime), which means this classic, rags-to-riches story has been turned on its head and cleverly staged to entertain everyone from children to adults. Featuring:
- Interactive audience participation
- Slapstick comedy
- Cross-dressing characters
- Fantastic dance numbers
- Modern music from Adele, to Walk the Moon, to Whitney Houston This fresh, new spin on the story
“You won’t find another Cinderella quite like this in Cincinnati!” says Roderick Justice, Producing Artistic Director for The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati and director/choreographer of TCT’s CINDERELLA production.” In this hilarious holiday panto, you’ll jeer at the deliciously dysfunctional stepmother and sisters as much as you’ll cheer for Cinderella in her quest to attend the magnificent Christmas ball. Join TCT this winter to celebrate a Cinderella Christmas.
