This version of the classic tale of Cinderella, her wicked step sisters and a glass slipper is an immersive theatre experience, emphasizing audience participation. The Fairy Godmother needs help from the audience because she is out of practice and not at all certain her magic is going to work properly. Cinderella’s slipper is tried on audience members, who are also consulted on various matters pertaining to the story. And of course, this play reveals the timeless message of love prevailing over all adversity as Cinderella  and the Prince ultimately  live happily ever after.

Hilliard Arts Council is committed to sharing the arts experience with the entire community and in that spirit, the September 25 performance will feature an ASL translator to enhance the experience for the hearing impaired as well as descriptive narration for the sight impaired with sufficient interest. If this service is of interest, please contact us at or call us at 888 980 2787.

Due to the current high levels of COVID in Franklin County, we recommend the same protocol as county public health officials:  masks on all visitors and participants are strongly recommended; vaccination is strongly recommended.  While not a requirement, we are trying to do our part to help limit community spread.  We will continue to comply with any local, county, or state requirements should these change.
