Cinderella and Her Barely Godmother

A hiking play presented by Arts in the Open

July 6- August 4

Chautauqua Picnic Shelter
Tickets: $20.00 ($17.00 Concert Member)*, $18.00 Colorado Mountain Club Member & $15.00 Children under 10

Grab the kids and enjoy this classic fairy tale with a twist!

Cinderella has it rough.  Always taking care of others and getting nothing in return, she dreams of someone sweeping in and magically transforming her life with the wave of a wand.  But what happens when the first-rate enchantress she wishes for turns out to be a second-tier sorcerer? Join us for a spell as we witness the duo discover what true magic really is.
Audience and actors meet at the Chautauqua Picnic Shelter and take a moderate hike on the Enchanted Mesa Trail while scenes from the play are performed along the way. Approximate length of the hike is two miles with an elevation gain of 400 feet.

Audience members are encouraged to bring camping chairs and/or blankets and mats to sit on while watching the scenes. Water, sunscreen and hats are suggested and comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing are strongly encouraged. In case of inclement weather, the performance will be held under the Picnic Shelter.

Buy early! Each hike is capped at low numbers and tends to sell out in advance.  Recommended for ages six (6) and older.
