Story Synopsis

A bewitching dramatization of this ageless story is made pictorially beautiful by the introduction of frequent dancing and music. Cinderella sees beautiful things in her daydreams and tries to live her little, starved life in a way to deserve them. Her stepmother and sisters catch her idling and tear up the dress she has made from their discarded ones. After they have departed for the prince's ball, the fairy godmother appears. She provides Cinderella with a dress which puts her sisters' glamorous gowns to shame, and sends her off to the ball in a golden coach. At the ball, she captivates the prince. But she stays too long, loses her slipper and escapes pursuit only after a breathless chase. The next day, when the prince comes looking for his lost princess, he tries the slipper on both stepsisters. Each sister tries vainly to make the slipper fit, and the prince is ready to leave before he discovers his princess.

Letter from the WCT President

Dear patrons,
  This year marks our 50th anniversary here at Walpole Children's Theatre. I would like to take a moment to thank all of you for your support over the years. We at W.C.T. strive to provide quality, affordable family entertainment for the community, and theatrical education for the children who participate in our productions. You, the audience, have allowed us to do just that for the last half century, and for that we are truly grateful!
   W.C.T. is an all volunteer, non-profit organization. The many people who work so hard to bring our productions to the stage do so because they believe in what we do, and they contribute their amazing talents out of the goodness of their own hearts. 
   Unlike similar groups, we do not charge the kids who perform in our shows. We feel strongly that ability to pay shouldn't be a factor in whether or not a child is able to participate in W.C.T.
   The majority of the funds we need to operate come directly from ticket sales. Over the years, we have tried to keep our shows as affordable as possible. Unfortunately, our expenses, like everyone else's, continue to increase year after year, and this season we find it necessary to increase our ticket prices for the first time in a decade. This small increase will help us bring our income in line with our expenses, and hopefully help us to operate for the next 50 years, and beyond!  Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Paul MacPhee
President, Walpole Children's Theatre
