Cinderella at South Coast Repertory Giveaway

see more by

I love that we live so close to a beautiful theatre like South Coast Repertory where we can expose our kids to the art of live theatre in such a lovely location.   Isn’t there just something so special about the ritual of dressing up and going to a show?  I am taking Emma to this performance of Cinderella next weekend, it will be her first play, and I am so excited to see her face when the curtains are drawn!

I am also VERY excited to be able to GIVEAWAY a family pack of four tickets to see Cinderella at any of the performances on opening weekend, Aug. 7 and 8, 2010!  Make sure to read the last paragraph on how you can enter to win tickets AND for a special offer for exclusive pre-sale tickets to A Christmas Carol!

Here are some details about Cinderella…

South Coast Repertory’s Summer Players (acting students in 3rd through 12th grade) will present Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella on the weekends of August 7-8 and 14-15, 2010.  A handsome prince finds—and then loses—his own true love.  He’ll find her again (in spite of those mean stepsisters with feet too big for the glass slipper) in this song-filled version of the fairy tale about a servant girl who’s transformed into a princess.

For the first time, the Players will present their summer show on SCR’s Julianne Argyros Stage. SCR Theatre Conservatory Director Hisa Takakuwa will direct, with Erin McNally as musical director.

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella—the songwriting team’s only musical written for television—was seen by over 100 million people in 1957, subsequently remade for TV twice and adapted for the stage.  Takakuwa has retained the fairy tale aspect—with a 1950’s America setting.

Dates:  Saturday, August 7 and 14 and Sunday, August 8 and 15 at 1 and 4pm

Tickets: $12 (may be purchased through the SCR Box Office at (714) 708-5555 or online at

I saw a performance in the Julianne Argyros Stage last year and it is a beautiful, intimate theatre with not a bad seat in the house.  Great to take your kids because of how every seat has prime viewing…but no kids under 4, everyone must sit in their own seat quietly, and no babes in arms!

Hooray! It’s a Tiny Giveaway!
