  Cinderella at Children's Theatre Company


Children's Theatre Company
2400 3rd Ave S Minneapolis

The holiday hit is coming back to the stage in this raucous production updated to wondrously wacky perfection. You have not truly experienced the magic and spectacle of the downtrodden would-be princess until you've seen it at CTC performed in the enduringly popular panto style with the cross-dressing stepsisters everyone loves to hate. The CTC acting company turns this classic fairy tale on its head with side-splitting physical comedy and enough romance and splendor to soften hearts and inspire audiences of all ages to seek their happily ever after.

  Cinderella Reviews

Twin Cities Pioneer Press - Highly Recommended

"...If Christmas is all about bringing joy to the world, then "Cinderella" at the Children's Theatre is spot on. Sure, the famous fairy tale has not traditionally been associated with the holidays--although in this version, the prince's ball conveniently takes place on Christmas Eve -- but the humor and happiness of the story make it as welcome as a holiday gift."

How Was The Show - Recommended

"...Wow. Never have I witnessed, in all my years of theater-going, such over-the-top scenery-chewing. These actors screech and scream and squeal. They jig, amble and lisp. Tear a passion to tiny tatters. Dance and gambol and drop trou and perform balletic pratfalls, perilously close to the Pit of Death (more on this anon). They sing: Sigmund's take on Joe Cocker's "You Are So Beautiful" is priceless. They incessantly swat at each other. Gleefully mistreat poor Cinderella. Interact with the audience ("Is there," Mom purrs as she caresses a hapless playgoer, "a Channing Tatum lookalike contest at CTC?"). Their performances match their delectable costumes (designed by Eduardo Sicangco): colorful, and extremely loud."
