Show Synopsis: “If the Shoe Fits” is a modern twist of the story of Cinderella, written by Karen Woodford. Prince Owen, from the Kingdom of Kravitz, is ready to go to college and study computers, but instead he must attend his graduation ball and choose a bride. All of the eligible girls in the kingdom will be there, including the Royal Fan Club. Audiences will be entertained as they see if Prince Owen will marry Cinderella, who just wants to study music and flee her evil stepmother’s house, or if the wicked Valda and the Python Gang will succeed in kidnapping the prince and replacing him with a mechanical duplicate.
Other Info: “If the Shoe Fits” will be directed by Jayne Lillis and produced by Tirsha Odisher. Approximately 35-40 students will be cast. Students involved will learn characterization, blocking, costuming, makeup and all aspects of a stage production.
