082015playRehoboth Summer Children’s Theatre presents: Cinderella, August 25th

This version of the classic story premiered at RSCT in 1989 and has become a mainstay of our schedule through the years. As usual, the lovely Cinderella must overcome the trickery of her vain step-sister and make her way to the Royal Ball and into the heart of Prince Charming. Miles, The Town Crier, and his jazzy trumpet add an extra element of humor to the festivities. And to spice things up further, there is the outrageously funny step-sister, Delmarva! Epworth United Methodist Church, Rehoboth Beach.
