Cinderella and Fella

Cinderella and Fella

March 19 to April 9, 2017 | On the Alliance Stage
World Premiere Musical
Part of the Family Series

A magical retelling of the Cinderella story that's more high-tops than glass slipper and is fueled by the magic of lightning bugs, singing cicadas, and oozing mud. Our young prince, who was raised by an overbearing parent, searches the kingdom for a best friend ready for adventure. Our Cinderella, who has spent countless days pulling her ungrateful stepmother around in her tiny house, fits the bill. Filled with humor and wonder, this is a world-premiere adaptation by Atlanta’s own Janece Shaffer with music by S. Renee Clark.

Audience Feedback

the-dancing-granny

We've officially hit summer here in Atlanta, and while temperatures are rising outside, we're staging the hottest dance party inside: The Dancing Granny. But with all there is to do this season, why should you grab the kids and come see the show?

A little known fact about the Alliance?
"We are the largest producing theatre in Georgia and if you break out our education department and its shows, that would be the second."

What is your hope for the future?
"For myself, I want to be happy. Motivation to succeed. For humanity, I wish for there to be more understanding, without disregard or hate."
