Enchanting, Great staging, Great writing, Refreshing, Great acting

See it if you like modern, clever rewrite of classic children's drama reinforcing independent, positive girls' self-image. This trick not just 4 kids!

Don't see it if you do not enjoy seeing hour plus (length varies as audience response) silliness with kids and adults squealing happily (adults are loudest)

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Ambitious

See it if you want to see a fun show for all ages. Children and adults will enjoy the humor. The show sends a great and moving message to all kids.

Don't see it if you only want to see serious shows geared to an adult audience. Also if you don't like to be in an audience partially filled with kids.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Fluffy, Hilarious

See it if you enjoy slapstick and improv. Not really a children's show but they seemed to enjoy it. Funny take on Cinderella.

Don't see it if you don't like shows with lots of kids in the audience, audience participation, lots of slapstick and amusing repartee.

For a previous production

"'The Commedia Cinderella' is filled with whimsy and laughs...With freedom to experiment and no semblance of a fourth wall in place, the audience is also part of the show...With all the colorful zaniness happening on stage, it is easy for members of the audience to become fully absorbed in the hilarity of the performance. And, through the power of laughter the impactful social messages of the piece are easy to digest."

"As strong as the cast are individually, as a unit, they are herculean...Part of what makes this show so endearing is how they interact with the audience...Incredibly witty verbal gags, savvy as all heck flow like jealousy at a bridal shower...I can’t think of a single negative thing to say about this show, even for the sake of balance. A stellar cast, a script to die for, and a reckless silliness powered by good taste and native wit."

“Definitely not just for children. It may possibly be the funniest version of ‘Cinderella’ ever presented on stage...If you like your heroines with a little more spunk, and you want to see a Cinderella who is not just meekly sitting around wishing for her prince to come, but is active, feisty and has a mind of her own, then you will love this show…A really fun show, and a greatly entertaining way to spend an hour or two.”

"A raucous and rambunctious adaption of the timeless fairy tale...'Commedia Cinderella' kept us in giggles, even if some of the jokes flew right over my kids' heads...The pace of the play is also a bit fast and at times, frenetic, which may not sit well with all children, while others will love the energy of it...It's definitely worth seeing for the adventurous family looking for something fresh."
