Children’s Theatre of Charlotte Presents The Commedia Cinderella & Giveaway

One of my favorite places to go with my family is the Children’s Theatre of Charlotte. We have enjoyed many family friendly performances there. I absolutely love the close interaction that the performers have with the audience; the fact that every seat is a great seat and that it’s a great theatre experience for young ones. The stories that have been transformed into theatre have allowed my children’s imaginations to go beyond books. It’s a wonderful place to bring your family while also enjoying a day or evening out in downtown Charlotte.

This weekend is the opening of their newest show, The Commedia Cinderella performed by the Tarradiddle Players. With roots in the humorous, physical acting style of Italian Commedia dell’arte, this comedic rendition of one of the world’s most famous and loved fairytales is just pure fun. Your children will follow along as beautiful Cinderella is forced to work as a kitchen maid by her mean Stepmother and two ugly Stepsisters. But thanks to a little help from her Fairy Godmother she still has a chance to win the hand of the handsome Prince.

This production will fill you with laughter until your belly hurts and is a perfect show for children of elementary school age. So plan a family day out and share this well-loved fairy tale with your little ones today.
