A magical Cinderella especially for kids. Big Noise Theatre Company promises an hour of fun, fantasy and giggles as it presents its first area, especially for Kids production of Cinderella, directed by professional director/choreographer Stacey Flaster (Evanston).
Big Noise Theatre's Cinderella, written by Marc Robin, tells the tale of a beautiful but neglected daughter, her emotionally-extreme stepsisters, a no-nonsense Fairy Godmother, an audience-powered wand, and, of course, a happily-ever-after ending. "Children really love this interactive version of the classic Cinderella," director Flastersays. "Cinderella not only finds her handsome Prince, but she also finds her own voice. She does all of this with a little magic and a lot of help from her friends in the audience." A special feature of Big Noise's Especially for Kids shows is that children get to meet and talk to the actors after the show. "The kids really love talking to the actors. It's a very exciting hands-on introduction to theatre for little ones," Flaster says. The all-adult cast of Cinderella comes from throughout the Chicagoland area. It stars Carey Lee Burton (Chicago), Mary Campbell (Palatine), Becky Mocarski (Chicago), Jack Ryan (Chicago), Lori Spencer (Northbrook), Jessica Vann (Chicago) and Tom Walker (Carol Stream).
