The ASH GIRLBy Timberlake Wertenbaker
Directed by Amanda Delheimer
"[ASC] continues to choose plays that are both entertaining and thought-provoking for its young audience productions. I recommend The Ash Girl highly." -Chicago Parent
show descriptionThe story of Cinderella has never been so richly conceived! Like a relic from another time and place, The Ash Girl is a rich folk tale with hints of allegory, myth and fantasy. There’s still a slipper, a prince and a wishgranting fairy, but the journey to the royal ball is fraught with danger. Only when she finds the strength to confront the monsters lurking in the forest—and in her heart—will Ash Girl regain her missing happiness. Designed with luscious set pieces, elaborate costumes, intricate masks and lyrical choreography, this play is
recommended for audiences 8 and older.
