The Peterborough Players has another great musical coming up for our young audiences - and the young at heart! Bring the family to see Cindy Reilly, a modern, musical retelling of the beloved Cinderella story performed by the Players’ Second Company, running from August 17th-24th.
Anyone familiar with the tale of Cinderella will recognize Cindy Reilly’s journey - Cindy is a hard-working, bespectacled CPA, in her family-run luxury hotel, surrounded by her chic stepsisters, a rockstar “formerly known as Prince Charming,” and her Leona Helmsley-ish “Queen of Mean” stepmother. With the help of some of her furry (and not-so-furry) friends, will Cindy be able to live the life of her dreams? The 10 members of the very gifted Second Company – young artists from around the country – bring Cindy and her family and friends to life.
Written by Players’ Artistic Director Gus Kaikkonen and Players’ favorites Kraig Swartz and composer Ellen Mandel, Cindy Reilly is tailor-made for young audiences, but filled with plenty of laughs for adults. A runtime of under an hour makes it the perfect activity for summer!
Please note that Cindy Reilly is a VERY limited run, so be sure to reserve your tickets! Performances are Saturday, August 17th at 2pm, Monday August 19th at 7pm, Tuesday, August 20th at 10:30am, Friday, August 23rd at 2pm, and Saturday, August 24th at 2pm.
