The Stepsisters (Edric Haleen and Bob Murrell) are hilarious; the Troubadour (Angela Wright) is your new best friend; you’ll fall in love with Cinderella (Hayley Mulcrone) and the Prince (Miles Hayes) and laugh along with the nearsighted stepmom (Kris Pecora) and discombobulated Fairy Godmother (Joanna Klepal). I have a special place in my heart for the “mice” since I’m related to two of them (daughter Emily and grandson Anderson Stevens, cutest 8-year old mouse ever.) Children’s-Theatre Stalwarts Anna Maier and Danny Ferris add their flair to the all-purpose rodent crew.
Special thanks to Magical Musician Doug Austin (with the incomparable Guiseppe Ravioli), Costume Wizard Kris Maier (with wigs & makeup by Rebecca Street and Susie Perazza) and producer/set/lighting/magic facilitator Tom Ferris - with David Cooper in the booth. Backstagers Cheryl & Jeremy Northum, Sharon Straubel (also did props) and Mark Zussman make a well-oiled set-twirling machine.
ONE MORE WEEKEND 7pm Friday, 2 & 4:30 pm Saturday (482-5700 - www.riverwalktheatre.com $5/$7)
