In this musical adaptation of the classic fairy tale by Michael Sgouros & Brenda Bell at the intimate Players Theatre, the beautiful but put-upon Cinderella must toil all day under the smirking demands of her awful stepsisters -- and then sleep among the cinders at night. Cinderella finds a way to make it to the Prince's ball, though, and even manages to capture his heart. Yes, she loses one of her shoes in the process, but what she gains is more precious than all the gold in the kingdom. Before the one-hour musical begins, you and your family can participate in interactive arts workshops where you'll learn about the original book and how it was brought to the stage. Kids can even make their own pumpkin carriage and magic wand to take home as a souvenir.

Lysistrata Rape Play by Mariah MacCarthy
In a not too distant future, American women have decided: enough is enough. Rape has to stop. In fact, they’ll give up sex completely in protest. As the enormity of their sacrifice sets in, sh*t starts to get real … deeply, uncomfortably real. A dark, dark, dark comedy.
The Butcher by Gwydion Suilebhan
In 2004, the butcher and sole proprietor of the Super Halal Market in suburban Springfield, VA ducked into the walk-in freezer to fetch some goat meat for a customer. When he returned moments later, the customer’s severed left hand lay on the floor by the meat saw, and a trail of blood led all the way out of the store. In the ensuing weeks, the butcher, his wife, a reporter and one innocent family try to make sense of this ultimately bewildering (and all too true) event.
