It’s that happy time again. Time to pre-soak your fairy costumes, dust off the plastic crowns, load your camera with fresh batteries and escort your little prince or princess to the Glendale Centre Theatre for a special kind of fun. They will love it. I know because when I explained to one young theater-goer that I was taking notes to write a review, she told me to say the show was “great.” Therefore, the following review is meant for moms, dads, grandparents and anyone else over the age of 18 who cherishes time spent with children. “Cinderella” has a lot for you, too.
Much of what the grown-ups will treasure arrives in the second act. The first act is cluttered with a few too many needless explanations about Who wants What and Why they want it. After all, who doesn’t know that Cinderella (a lovely Stephanie Skewes) is a sweet young girl being cruelly treated by her Wicked Stepmother (all-pro Tiffany LaBarbera Palmer)?
