A Cinderella Story
by Talya & Lili Daie
12F / 7M / + Optional Extras
Approximate Playing Time: 1 Hr. 50 Min.

Cindy (Cinderella) doesn’t care much for balls and Al (The Prince) has no interest in marriage. He’d much rather continue traveling the world experiencing new places and meeting exotic people—and so would Cindy if she ever had the chance. But, as the tale typically goes, her stepsisters and stepmother have no intention of Cindy ever aspiring to be anything other than their kitchen-maid. Al’s sympathetic father drowns his own dissatisfaction with the ills of marriage in alcohol while The Queen, appalled at the thought of some bride off the street winning the heart of her son, creates a list of suitable princesses-to-be. But word gets out that anyone can attend the ball where Al is to choose a wife. Cindy’s non-fairy Godmother, intent on furthering her own political ambition, shows up to send Cindy to the ball to squelch any chance that Al chooses a wife from among the eligible countesses. At the ball, a bored Cinderella hides from her Stepsisters in a room where, as luck would have it, Al brings his wanna-be-brides to say and do outrageous things to scare them off from marriage. From behind a curtain, Cindy hears all the hilarious goings-on and once discovered by the Prince, shares delight in his escapades. They dance, Al is smitten, she runs away, and, of course, the search for the girl who lost the tiny white shoe begins—although the Prince has second thoughts about really wanting to find her and Cindy has no intention of being found. Which leaves us to wonder, whether those two will ever get their happy ending… $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
