Quick Center for the Arts presents Missoula Theatre's production of "Cinderella"


"Cinderella," an original adaptation of the classic fairy tale will be staged at Fairfield University's Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts for one performance only as the Missoula Children's theater presents its third production of the summer season on Friday, Aug. 4, at 7 p.m. This is the 11th anniversary of Missoula's association with the Quick Center's summer camp program for children in grades 1-12.

Experience the unique twist Missoula puts on this classic story as a pumpkin coach, Prince Charming, a glass slipper and a dream come true are all woven together by the magic of a Fairy Godmother. Also featured in this enchanting musical are Cleo the Cat, Fido the Dog, the Lords and Ladies, the Town Criers, the King and the Beggars.

The nation's preeminent professional children's theater company, Missoula Children's Theatre, is a non-profit organization based in Missoula, Montana. It has been touring extensively throughout the United States and abroad for 27 years, serving more than 300 communities each year. A variety of roles for children in grades 1-12 is provided in each production, and middle and high school students are encouraged to audition for leading roles. In addition to the production rehearsals, the Quick Center also conducts workshops in dance, theater, puppetry, arts and crafts and creative movement as part of the camp experience.

"Cinderella" promises to be a fun-filled event for the whole family. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for children and seniors. The series will conclude in mid-August with four performances of "Treasure Island." For more information call the Quick Center box office at (203) 254-4010 or toll free at 1-877-ARTS-396.
