Production Description:

Cinderella Lives! is a one-woman show that retells ‘Cinderella’ to question the relevance of outmoded social and cultural distinctions that separate people by gender and stymie their personal development. Part tongue-in-cheek performance art, part character-comedy, part burlesque; this show invites the audience to question their viewpoints of themselves as individuals and their understanding of gender roles.

This is a compact show that would be ideal for an arts venue studio space, a literary/arts/culture festival slot or any event focusing on feminism or gender. It has an intimate feel, but offers a range of entertainment as it moves from storytelling, to dance and song sequences.

The production has basic lighting, AV and prop requirements and a degree of flexibility in terms of space and duration. Currently playing on a stage space of 4.88m x 4.88m.

The age range for this show is 14 +
