Quiet on the set! It is time for Cabrini’s spring performance of “Cinderella Waltz.” A crazy, comedic, hillbilly version of Cinderella with a twist of class.

Directors, senior Kit Dewey, and junior Haven McMickle are more than excited to be directing the show and enjoy working with the small, hard-working cast.

“It’s a Cinderella story set in hicksville with a twisted ending. The waltzing is the only remaining elegance in the story,” Dewey said.

“We’re both interested in drama therapy and Neal knew that so he asked us [to direct],” McMickle said. ”

When going to see this play, the audience will not be sitting in the typical stadium-style setting, rather an arena setting where an estimated 60 people can sit on three different sides of the stage. This is a unique experience for not only the actors, but also the audience because they will feel as though they are a part of this off-the-wall Cinderella story.

“This show is different from other plays we’ve done here, because it’s a straight comedy and we don’t usually do them. It’s a really funny play,” Dewey said.

According to McMickle, plays performed in the Red Cloud Coffeehouse are usually based on reality, whereas “Cinderella Waltz” requires imagination. It’s based on a fantasy world.

The curtain will open on April 4 and 5, and April 10-12, starting at 8 p.m. in the Red Cloud Coffeehouse in Grace Hall. There is a $10 general admission fee for the public, and students with college identification will be admitted for $5.

For more information, call 610-902-8510.
