MICHIGAN CITY | Elston Middle School will give a classic fairytale a techno-twist as they present the play, "Cinderella's Fella" on Friday, April 26th and Saturday, April 27th at 7:00 p.m. in the Elston Performing Arts Center.
In this modern take on the Cinderella tale, Prince Humphrey uses his computer to court a cyber-honey -- much to the dismay of his mother, the Queen. She hires a Fairy Godmother to turn her lazy son into Prince Charming so he can find a real bride. When Cinderella's step-siblings enlist the same Fairy Godmother to turn Cinderella into a disaster date... well, things get interesting. "Cinderella's Fella" proves that appearances are only skin deep, and true love can see through any spell, on or offline!
Tickets for the production are available at the door; students under 18 are $3.00 and adults are $5.00.
