    When Drew and Beth (who are not wicked, evil and ugly) are thrown into the dungeon for conspiring against the throne, they tell their fellow prisoners what really happened with Cinderella. Drew, Beth and Ella are really the best of friends and—spoiler alert—Drew is actually Ella’s fairy godmother. So bibbity-bobbity-boom!

When the slipper fits a sweet young peasant, the wedding is hastily planned for later that day, but it is revealed that his bride-to-be is an impostor. More ladies try on the shoe and more weddings almost happen. Finally, he discovers Cinderella, but she isn’t ready to marry a stranger who can only recognize her by her shoe size.

    In this rollicking adaptation of Shakespeare's play, teens, fairies, workers and royalty collide in a forest on a summer night, and are bedazzled by a prankster. The fairy queen falls in love with an ass, the teens fall in and out (and in) love with each other, well-meaning goofs stumble into their 15 minutes of fame and fairies weave magic to bring it all to a happy end. Three streetwise storytellers pull the audience at breakneck speed toward the moon-drenched conclusion. Learn More
