African-American Shakespeare Company

Enjoy the laughter this holiday season with the African-American Shakespeare Company's original production of Cinderella. Delighting audiences for over 23 years, this heartwarming production of the lowly scullery maid who doesn't know her own value. Only when a special invitation to the palace arrives, does Cinderella begin to dream of something more, but her stepmother and (oddly masculine) stepsisters have different plans for our heroine. Dreams do come true... with the help of a sassy fairy godmother who can make the magic happen. A side-splitting comedy that will have all ages with tears of laughter in their eyes and warmth in their hearts this holiday.

This is what SF/Arts curator Laura Fraenza had to say about Cinderella :

Not your typical holiday fare, nor Disney’s tale of the maid-turned-princess, African-American Shakespeare’s “Cinderella” portrays a strong woman aware of life’s inequalities with a message to little girls of color: it’s possible to have inner strength but also be vulnerable. And a prince is not essential. The company’s director and hometown heroine is Sherri Young, a graduate of SOTA & A.C.T.
