The charming story of Cinderella, with a little help from the audience. The familiar characters of the wicked stepsisters and step mother, fairy godmother, handsome prince are joined by an absent-minded kind and helpful duke to bring to life a storybook favorite. The story can not be told though without help from the children in the audience.
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.
