An O'Neill Native is among those in the cast and crew of Don Nigro's "Cinderella Waltz" being put on by Central Community College-Columbus. The play will be performed at 7 p.m. April 5-7 and at 2 p.m. on April 8 in the Fine Arts Theater.
Moira Mangiameli is the director and Levi Howe is the technical director of the play, which is a hilarious, delightful satire of the Cinderella story, complete with wicked stepmother and ugly stepsisters, a handsome prince and a fairy godmother. Be prepared, though, for a lot of surprising twists and turns in this sometimes silly, sometimes poignant fairy tale for grownups.
Tickets will be sold at the door and are $7 for general admission. Reservations are not required.
