PA Shakespeare Festival's Cinderella & Prince Charming

Most little girls dream of becoming a princess. You know, falling in love with prince charming. Living in a great big castle. Having gobs of money to do whatever you please. And, for that very reason, most little girls look up to Cinderella, the original fairy tale character who goes from rags to riches and is swept off her feet by the most handsome man around.

And, to relive my childhood dream, I couldn’t think of a better thing to do than to go see Cinderella at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival at DeSales University. I saw it a couple of years ago, but knew it wouldn’t be the very same production. It never is! Last time I took my niece, who was 11 at the time. She was definitely not too old for it and we had an absolute blast. This year, it was my 84-year old grandmother’s turn, along with my 65-year old mother! Yup, three generations of us gals, enjoying a fun day out together.
