I took the day off last Friday to take my niece, Jenna, to see Cinderella at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival in Center Valley, Pa. Needless to say, we had an absolute blast!

This classic story was brought to life in anything but a traditional format. Cinderella, or Cindy as she was called for short, was well-portrayed, but in our opinion, the two step sisters (Trivia and Inconsequentia) really made the play with their overpowering personalities.

Dancing was a huge part of the performance. Jenna's favorite part was the Beyonce-like dance moves at the Ball. The three mice, friends of Cindy's, also had some fantastic dance moves that made us laugh. 

The step mother, played by male actor Eddie Seage, also did a phenomenal job and deserves to be commended. You would never have known that he is only a junior at De Sales University

The show was designed to bring the kids in the audience up close and personal with the actors. They were allowed to sit on carpeted areas right on the stage. After the show there was an autograph signing session in the lobby that the kids just loved. Some of them even came dressed in Cinderella costumes themselves!

As we were leaving one of the mothers mentioned that she thought the adults had more fun than the kids, which I would have to agree with. Why not take the day off and bring back your childhood memories by going to see Cinderella? You won't be disappointed!
