Cinderella Closing (Theater and Galleries) Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through Jan. 6 2013

Judging from the delight of the kindergarten-age princess wannabes at the morning matinee I attended, this Emerald City Theatre adaptation of the classic fairy tale is a perfect fit for its target audience. The briskly paced hour-long production keeps them engaged with audience interaction, slapstick silliness, and playful low-tech special effects. There's a smidgen of wholesome romance, but the show's main strength is the comic supporting cast: Tommy Bullington and Mark Kosten, in drag, as Cinderella's ungainly stepsisters and Corey Mills and Kyle Michael Kuhlman as rodent-turned-human valets. —Albert Williams
