How to Select Your Own Seat

December 7-22, 2013


Directed by L. Peter Callender

San Francisco’s African-American Shakespeare Company continues its 19th season with an enchanting production of CINDERELLA. This timeless tale, brought to whimsical, magical life just in time for the holidays, is an uplifting re-telling of the classic fairytale, featuring all of the pageantry, hilarity, and charm of the original, but with a soulful twist. This heartwarming story finds Cinderella, a young, beautiful dreamer, toiling away as a lowly scullery maid for her evil stepmother and stepsisters. With the help of a fabulous Fairy Godmother who makes the magic happen, Cinderella finds her Prince Charming and learns that anything is possible, even miracles.

Director’s Notes

Over the past few years, Cinderella, our seasonal gift of to our community, has become one of the highlights of my job. I’ve gotten to welcome and watch children (of all ages!) experience the magic and wonder; the pure heart of this eternal story of hope, chance and love. This year, our story comes wrapped with original songs by Angel Burgess adding a fun, rollicking, musical time to our contemporary telling of this familiar family fairy tale. And I get to direct! Sit back—no, sit up and ENJOY!
