About the Play

Comedy. 50-60 minutes. 3-4 females, 2-3 males (6 performers total, plus optional extras). Suitable for high school and older performers, and young audiences.

Premiered at the Minnesota Fringe Festival (directed by Kari Steinbach; Minneapolis, MN), and at the same time toured Prince George County Parks as winner of the Prince George County Children's Theatre Contest (Riverdale, MD). 

"There aren’t many Fringe offerings that are truly all-ages shows, but this is one and it’s very fun, even if attending kid-less. It’s an adaptation of 'La Cenerentola,' the Italian folk tale that inspired 'Cinderella' (and Rossini’s opera), but in Claudia Haas’s version, the title character is OCD about cleaning, which is too much for her stepmother but just right for an order-obsessed prince. It’s presented like the kind of comedies performed in Renaissance-era public squares, and is delivered with a light touch and plenty of kid-pleasing charm. They may even come away with the impression that cleaning is fun." —Ron Hubbard, St. Paul Pioneer Press
