Valley Special

Arts Onstage presents StoryBook Theatre's 'Cinderella'

by Carolyn Butler, Duvall Arts Commission

   Arts Onstage, the performing arts series presented by the Duvall Arts Commission and the Duvall Foundation for the Arts, brings StoryBook Theatre's production of Cinderella to the Cedarcrest Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Nov. 14, at 2 p.m.

   Cinderella is going to the ball--but how? An ingenious fairy godmother, a transformed pumpkin, and an assortment of delightful, wise-cracking helpers will make it so. Join her as she overcomes a host of obstacles to take the palace by storm, leaving a clue in her wake and a prince on her trail.

   StoryBook Theatre presents musical theatre for very young audiences, ages 3 through 9, and their families. Performances are 55 minutes long and feature adult professional actors in high-energy, entertaining comedies created especially for very young audiences--but with something for the adults as well.

   This presentation of StoryBook Theatre's newest production is made possible through the King County Performance Network, a collaboration between the King County Arts Commission and local arts agencies, designed to offer great performances at affordable prices.

   In addition to StoryBook Theatre's Cinderella, the 1999-2000 Performance Network includes works by UMO Ensemble, Spectrum Dance Theater, Edmonia Jarrett and MOGO Big Band, Awilda Verdejo, Seattle Baroque, and the Seattle Mime Theatre. Performances take place at venues throughout King County, including Auburn, Burien, Duvall, Enumclaw, Federal Way, Issaquah, Kent, Kirkland, Mercer Island, Redmond, Renton, Shoreline, Snoqualmie, and Tukwila.
