The mission of the wonderfully named Parson’s Nose Productions is to introduce “classic theater to family audiences,” through original one-hour adaptations of dramatic masterpieces. These staged readings are designed to be both smart enough for grownups and boisterous enough for kids. They used to put on shows at Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters, but have recently moved to a new location, the Lineage Performing Arts Center on Fair Oaks.
This week’s production is Charles Perrault’s Cendrillon, better known to you and me as Cinderella, that classic of bullying, alienation, and shifting family dynamics, in what sounds like a high-minded adaptation. Still with pumpkins and magic shoes, however! Recommended for kids eight and up.
