RRCC presents: Cinderella Waltz by Don Nigro

Fairy tale comedy opens April 10, 2014

Red Rocks Community College Theatre Arts and Dance Department, with permission from Samuel French Inc., is proud to present Cinderella Waltz by Don Nigro, beginning April 10, 2014 at Red Rocks Community College.cinderella 6

 

A classic fairy tale is flipped on its head in this retelling of Cinderella.  Not only is the comedy amplified, but the play explores the truth behind the “Happily Ever After” myth. The lead character, Rosey Snow, meets the same challenges as any other Cinderella, but reaches different conclusions. Not everyone is meant to marry a prince… and not every princess is happy.

 

Director Kelly Jo Eldredge joins RRCC after years on the road with touring shows and regional productions. “This play goes against our gentrified, sweet, Disney version of Cinderella,” said Eldredge. “It’s modern. It’s gritty. It’s laugh-out-loud funny. Nothing happens the way it’s supposed to happen.”

 

Eldredge explains how Don Nigro’s take on a fairy tale is unique.  “There are references in the play to all kinds of folklore from all over the world–everything from Irish limericks to Peter Rabbit to the Grimm brothers to ancient Chinese folklore to King Lear.  It prompts the audience to examine our fairy tale ideals in a humorous way. How do they define success? Where did they come from? Are they still relevant?”

 

Cinderella Waltz by Don Nigro runs Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights: April 10, 11, 12, 18, and 19 at 7:30 p.m. and one Sunday matinee on April 13 at 2:00 p.m. at Red Rocks Community College.  Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and $8 for students. Admission is free for RRCC Students with a current ID.
