Big wacky panto fun coming up with Cinderella…if the shoe fits! @ Cabbagetown Festival

Get ready for some big wacky fun with Cabbagetown Theatre’s panto production of Cinderella…if the shoe fits! at this year’s Cabbagetown Festival, opening Friday, September 7 at the Necropolis Chapel.

Here’s what the folks at Cabbagetown Theatre have to say about the production:

Join the adventures of a BBQ-obsessed Cinderella as she attempts to break a branch off the family tree and escape the torments of her nasty family. Fairy Godmother lends a helping hand to get Cinderella to the Prince’s Ball, where she must compete against her dance-challenged stepsisters and man-magnet Stepmama for the Prince’s affections. Will the shoe fit? Audiences will have to find out!!

Cinderella…if the shoe fits! is written and directed by Kim Sprenger, featuring the talents of returning favourite Wendy Akerboom as Fairy Godmother with Jennifer Monteith as Cinderella; Tennille Read as the cougar-iffic Stepmama; Adriana Crivici and Eun Jung Nam as the nasty stepsisters, Willa and Nilla; and Michael Man as the ever-so-charming Prince.

Cinderella…if the shoe fits! runs at the Necropolis Chapel (200 Winchester St., Toronto – across from Riverdale Farm) Fri, Sept 7 – Sun, Sept 9. Performances are: Fri, Sept 7 at 7:30  p.m., with shows at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. & 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The show runs 30 minutes and tickets are $5.   http://cabbagetowntheatre.com/

DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS: In the post about TIFF, I incorrectly listed the opening as this past Sunday (which was actually the day single tickets went on sale). The festival opens today (Thurs, Sept 6). The error has been corrected in the original post.
