A New Version of Cinderella

By on October 14, 2019

Told From The Fairy Godmother’s Point Of View World Premiere!

OFC Creations (Opportunities For Creativity) will be presenting the world premiere of Bibbidi Bobbidi Cinderella from October 19 to 20, 2019 at the Lyric Theater. The show is written by Rochester native, Charlie Harrington, a New York City based actor, writer, and performer.

A new version of the classic Cinderella story, is now told from the comical point of view of The Fairy Godmother. After frantically searching for her missing storybook, Godmother finds a copy, but it’s the wrong version. Now, The Fairy Godmother must put aside her pride and tell the Cinderella story, without her in it. Comedy and madcap theatrics ensue as the book spirals out of control and Godmother has to piece back together the story and find the happy ending.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Cinderella features four professional adult actors: Hunter Ekberg as Fairy Godmother, Mandi Lynn Griffith Gurell as Cinderella, Fred Pienk as the Prince, and Paige Waldron as the Stepsister. The show was originally conceived and directed by Eric Vaughn Johnson.

Performances of Bibbidi Bobbidi Cinderella are:

•Saturday, October 19 at 2:00 PM
