This upcoming school play “Happily Ever Once Upon” is a classical Cinderella and Prince Charming tale. After 20 years of marriage, Cinderella and Prince Charming have some problems. The play will be presented on December 1, 2, 8, and 9 at the Mark Twain Middle School Auditorium, 2224 Walgrove Ave.

The Enchanted Kingdom teeters on the brink of bankruptcy. Cinderella’s fairy godmother is blackmailing her, the Prince’s adviser has one arm and one swan’s wing and an unfortunate habit of breaking everything he encounters and Red Riding Hood has her eye on the Prince and his treasury. Cinderella has done her best to find GoldiLocks a love interest. Then everything unravels at the ball!

“This play is like reliving your childhood with more mature topics,” said Drama Club president Jaden Corona.
“I am really happy to be a part of this year’s play,” said junior Tyler Stoner. “It’s going to be magical, sad, and exciting. It’s definitely one of the theater’s department best work.”

“This is a not-to- miss performance,” said Ms. Traci Thrasher. ”It’s going to be beautiful, the acting is going to be amazing, there’s dancing, music, and gorgeous costumes.”

Purchase tickets from a cast or crew member for $5, the tickets will be $7 at the door.
