Cinderella adapted by Forest Cloud

Public performances are February 23, 24 and March 2, 3 at 7:00PM at Seney Stovall Chapel- 201 N. Milledge Ave. Athens, GA (next to the Varsity restaurant).


Since her mother’s death, Ella Dupree has been away at school for some time. With news that her 1718RoA Cinderella Poster Color V3-page-001father has remarried a mysterious Baroness, Ella returns home with dreams of a new, happy family. Unfortunately, it is not the jubilant celebration she had hoped. Ella must adjust to a new life with her cruel step mother and step sisters, her increasingly absent father, and the never-ending tasks given by the Baroness. She dreams of a future that seems far away. All of that could change with one royal invitation. Join Ella, and a cast of familiar characters, as we journey to a beautiful Kingdom by the sea.

Some performances will be treated with a ‘Meet & Greet’ with the playwright, Forest Cloud. All performances will take place at Seney-Stovall Chapel – 201 N. Milledge Ave. Athens, GA. Be on the look out for more magical fun, with a ticket giveaway on RoA’s Facebook page and a Royal Pampering basket giveaway at the show!

The Box Office will open at 6:00PM, the House at 6:30PM for general seating, and curtain at 7:00PM.
