Cinderella (Madison Watley) is offered some stinky cheese by mouse Royce Manese.

Parkland Secondary School actors entertained elementary school students from all over the school district this week with  their performance of Cinderella.

Senior Acting class students have been presenting the interactive play this week for over 1,400 young spectators from schools. The class is also offering a performance tomorrow, April 26 for families.

“The students have been rehearsing since mid-March and are thrilled to be able to perform six shows this year,” said Parkland teacher Christine Irving, who added she has been thoroughly impressed with the performers’ excitement and energy.

The family showing of Cinderella is in the Parkland theatre Saturday, April 26 at 1 p.m. Tickets for the whole family (the performance is best suited for children aged 3 to 8 and is 45 minutes long) are $10 and will be available starting at 12:30 p.m.
