Participation play. By Steve and Kathy Hotchner.
Cast: 3m., 5w. A drama critic summed up a key advantage to these participation plays saying, "Kids can't talk back to a television screen. In glorious contrast is [this] 'Cinderella' in which members of the audience help the show along!" As the action begins in this participation version of the old favorite, small groups of children come on to the stage to help Cinderella clean the stepmother's house before the terrible family returns. The children then help an absentminded Fairy Godmother get Cinderella dressed and ready for the ball; create the wild ride to the castle; and provide a distraught King Ferdinand and a sorrowful prince with a queen and ladies and gentlemen to dance with at the ball. Bare stage w/props. Approximate running time: 25 minutes.
