The Motlow College theatre department is eager to delight children with its production of "The Glass Slipper" beginning Wednesday, Oct. 28, according to Jeannie Gallant, associate professor of communications at Motlow and director of the production.
"This delightful version of Cinderella introduces us to some playful new characters," said Gallant, "including a fearless mouse, a timid cat and the amazing Pumpkinhead, who changes into a coach."
Performances are scheduled for Wednesday through Friday, Oct. 28 - 30, at 9 a.m., 10:20 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The play will conclude with November performances Wednesday through Friday, Nov. 4 - 6, at the same times.
