Description:

A WICKED twist on the tale of Cinderella, Stepsisters tells the totally-true-and-not-at-all-made-up version of the little cinder girl. When Drew and Beth are thrown into the dungeon for conspiring against the throne, these stepsisters, who are not wicked, evil and certainly not ugly, are forced to tell their fellow prisoners the real story of what happened with Cinderella.

Part flashback, part story theatre and all high-octane musical comedy, the story unfolds in ways the Grimm tale never did. You see, Harrison is a great prince, but he gets tongue-tied when he has to talk to girls. And how many men did the stepmother marry, and why do they keep dying? Is trying on a shoe really the best way to choose a bride? Drew, Beth and Ella are really the best of friends and—spoiler alert—Drew is actually Ella’s fairy godmother. So bibbity-bobbity-boom!

How can two sisters play matchmaker for their tomboy stepsister while trying to out-connive a conniving mother, outwit a sadistic chancellor and make everyone’s dreams come true before the jailer takes their heads? With 13 songs, all shorter than two minutes, the breakneck pace gallivants onward, giving us a fresh take on a story we all thought we knew. But those Brothers Grimm got it wrong again.
