Enjoy an evening of theatre for the whole family. The Benjamin Cosor Players open the evening with “Simply Cinderella”. This bare-bones, cut-to-the-chase re-telling of the classic fairy tale is fast-paced and flat out funny. Overworked and under-appreciated Cinderella swings her broom at the Fairy Godmother, thinking she’s a giant moth. Meanwhile, Queen Hobnail wants Prince Shubert to choose a suitable princess, but he would rather play video games than dance with a girl. The beleaguered Fairy Godmother manages to bring the two together, at least until midnight, while Cinderella’s stepmother and stepsisters wait for the other shoe to drop. This upbeat, slap-happy fractured fairy tale will delight performers and audiences alike.

The evening concludes with an original play written and performed by our very own Ellie J. The World has gone bonkers and there is only one clown left on earth! Concealed in a colorful bunker, the Fool passes the days with determined fun-making. But when a crack in the wall is discovered, will the Fool venture outside, or stay hidden away? Is the Fool really the last clown, or are there other friends to be found? Join the journey of fearless jubilation!
