About the Play:

Cinderella Waltz is a full-length comedy by Don Nigro. This is a twisted and hilarious retelling of the world's most popular fairy tale. Cinderella Waltz combines different versions of the tale – including the familiar and charming Perrault version and the darker, more ancient and disturbing tale recorded by the brothers Grimm – with dashes of Beauty and the Beast and Snow White thrown in to create a modern fairy tale. Especially recommended for school and contest use.

Cinderella Waltz tells the story of Rosey Snow who is trapped in a fairy tale world that is, by turns, funny and a little frightening, with her stepsisters Goneril and Regan, her demented stepmother, her lecherous father, a bewildered Prince, a fairy godmother (who happens to sing bewildered sailor songs), a troll, and a possibly homicidal village idiot. Grotesque farce and romantic fantasy blend in a fairy tale for adults. Veering far from the land of Disney, grotesque farce and romantic fantasy blend with a twist of Monty Python to bring you an adult fairy tale full of laughs ... Cinderella Waltz is not the children's story you remember!

Cinderella Waltz premiered in 1978 at Indiana State University's Summer Repertory Theater (now called Crossroads Repertory Theatre) in Terre Haute, Indiana. Since then the play had regional premieres at professional theatres across the US and has been performed in regional repertory, middle school, high school, college, and community theatre productions.

Cast: 5 female, 4 male

What people say:

"... delivers laughs and leads to rethinking what constitutes a truly happy ending ... Cinderella Waltz ... offers a philosophical search for truth by examining the choices made by his quirky fairy-tale characters, especially Cinderella as she considers the all-too-common predicament of whether to choose a life of riches as opposed to a life of true happiness following her heart." — BroadwayWorld
