The Children’s Theatre Workshop at the Asheville Arts Center is pleased to announce the first two shows of our Fall season: Cinderella, Kids! and Grease, School Version.  We have two casts for each show – one in our Main location and one in our South location.  Both shows perform in October, see below for more details.

Cinderella, Kids! (4-7 years)

cinderellaThe timeless fairy tale meets the magic of Disney in this adaptation of the treasured animated film. Poor Cinderella is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters, and denied a chance to go to the Royal Ball. With a little help from her mice friends, and a lot of help from her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella goes to the ball, meets the Prince, and falls in love! With a beautiful score including “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” and the classic “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” this musical will charm its way into your heart, and remind you that dreams really can come true.

Performances are October 10, 2009.  (2 performances per cast.)

Grease, School Version (8+ years)

0910_GreaseLogo_WebIt’s 1959 and Rydell high is filled with rebellious, thrill-loving students. In the midst of this scene, Sandy Dumbrowski enters as the new girl in school. It turns out that she and the leader of the Burger Palace Boys gang, Danny Zuko, have had a brief love affair the summer before. While Sandy stresses to her new classmates the emotional attachment she and Danny had, Danny stresses the different aspects of their relationship. In the end, Sandy and Danny resolve their differences and end up happily together. Dancing in the show involves 1950s jazz styles.

Note: This show is toned down for younger performers.  From the Samuel French website: “Groups who perform for young audiences or produce musicals with young actors now have an ideal version of GREASE for their needs. Shorter and more suitable in content for teens and subteens, this abridged version retains the fun-loving spirit and immortal songs that make GREASE a favorite among rock and roll fans of all ages.”

Performances are October 16-18, 2009.  (2 performances per cast.)

Both shows and both casts are sure to be a hit!  To get your kids involved in these shows or future children’s theatre productions, give us a call @ 828.253.4000.
