It’s a Cinderella Story– like you’ve never seen it before!

Take the classic story of Cinderella, mix in elements of comedy, slapstick, music, acrobatics and magic, and you’ve got a new version of an old story that leaves kids (and adults) begging for more! The show is great for primary grades, and older students that appreciate the flippant comic style of this “Fractured Fairy Tale”. The fun is put to good use in the classroom since Sunshine Standards for literature, theatre and reading are included in FTF’s teacher guidelines.

This is a Live Sensory Friendly Performance at the Sandrell Rivers Theater. Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a performing arts experience that is welcoming to all families with children with autism or with other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities.
