The timeless fairy tale becomes a new audience favorite in Disney’s Cinderella KIDS, an adaptation of the treasured animated film geared toward young performers. Poor Cinderella is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters and denied a chance to go to the royal ball. With a little help from her mice friends, and a lot of help from her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella’s dreams come true. She goes to the ball, meets the Prince, and falls in love!

With many great featured speaking roles and minimal solo singing, this is the perfect show for large ensembles. Most roles can be played by boys or girls and do not require strong vocal skills. The chorus of mice can be expanded infinitely – a great opportunity to involve elementary-age children. Although there are four narrators indicated in the script, you can cast even more depending on the size of your cast!

With a beautiful score, including “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” and the classic “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” Disney’s Cinderella KIDS will charm its way into your heart, and remind audiences that dreams really can come true.

Blue macaws Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and their three children are comfortably settled in the city — perhaps too comfortably. Jewel fears that the children are becoming more like humans than birds. After learning that she and Blu may not be the last blue macaws after all, Jewel decides that their little family should visit the Amazon jungle. It’s there that Blu meets his formidable father-in-law (Andy Garcia) and goes beak-to-beak with archnemesis Nigel (Jemaine Clement).

One of Lorain County’s legendary haunted sites has inspired a movie that is due for release in 2015.

“Gore Orphanage” is based on the historical former orphanage that, according to legend, now is “haunted” by the ghosts of children who died there. The movie is in production in Scottdale, Pa., southeast of Pittsburgh, but the film-makers made a field trip this week to visit the site of the orphanage off Gore Orphanage Road in rural Lorain County.

“It is a period piece that is more about mood than overt gore,” said Executive Producer Cody Knotts. His wife, historical actress Emily Lapisardi, is directing the film.

The concept for the movie grew from another road trip when the couple were driving to Detroit to sign a band for an earlier movie. Knotts and Lapisardi said they drove past Gore Orphanage Road and were intrigued by the name.

“We didn’t know about the legend,” Lapisardi said. “I thought it was an incredible detail. I did a little research and found the story and we went from there.”

The movie is set in 1934 and will follow a young girl named Nellie, played by Emma Smith, 9, who is sent to the Gore Orphanage following the death of her family. She makes friends of Esther, played by Nora Hoyle, 8, and Buddy, played by Brandon Mangin, 9, but the trio also must deal with Mrs. Pryor, the keeper of the orphanage.
