What is Cinderella, and why is it a relevant message leading into Christmas?
Cinderella is a moral tale about unjust oppression, and the story of the oppressed rising up to overcome the oppressor. Cinderella’s wicked stepmother turns her into a slave in her own house, yet Cinderella teaches us to be brave and take chances, to never stop dreaming and to believe in ourselves. More importantly, it teaches us to always be kind and to forgive others, whatever they may have done to us. Isn’t that the true meaning of Christmas?
Cinderella is a well-known and enduring fable with literally thousands of variants throughout the world. The earliest known version was recorded by the ancient Greek geographer Stabo about two thousand and twenty six years ago. It told of a Greek slave girl who marries the Pharaoh of Egypt.
St. George's Community Theatre is pleased to offer our Pantomime interpretation of Cinderella at the the start of the 2019 Christmas season, to welcome in the season of Christ’s gift to the world, and to provide the community with light-hearted and fun entertainment as we move into the winter’s season.
