Dear Friends, A very dear person gifted me with a wonderful picture book called Glass Slipper, Golden Sandal by Paul Fleischman. Within its beautifully illustrated pages, the Cinderella story is retold in a unique way. Its story points are borrowed from Cinderella stories in 17 cultures. Cinderella dresses in a kimono red as sunset in Japan, for instance, and wears sandals of gold in Iraq. This book epitomizes the inspiration behind this play choice. The fact that Cinderella appears in so many cultures and has been retold for so many generations is one reason I wanted to explore its merits and share it with our audiences. I spent many hours with playwright Janece Shaffer and composer S. Renee Clark discussing the Cinderella story. We wanted to honor tradition but connect to the lives of the people sitting in our theater. So our Cinderella is an outdoor gal with a great love of the natural world, and our prince, Fella, is an electric guitar-playing recluse. Like many young people, neither is particularly aware of the real gifts they possess. This brings me to another reason to live inside this story. Cinderella has a quality that is present in every telling: She is kind. Kindness is a trait that is sometimes overlooked as more bombastic qualities take focus. Now is the perfect time to feature a young protagonist who is kind despite all odds, and also has the good sense to open herself to forces in the world that will help her grow. I hope you enjoy this 2017 version of Cinderella, and may all your cohorts be kind. Blessings,

Rosemary Newcott Sally G. Tomlinson Artistic Director of Theatre for Youth and Families

In this world premiere riff, kindness counts, friendship beats romance and magic lies just outside your back door.

By Kathy Janich

here’s no place in the world like Kashoogie. So you’ll learn as Cinderella and Fella unfolds on the Alliance Theatre stage. Kashoogie is a modern-day place. A Southern place. A much-like-Georgia place with its kudzu, magnolias, azaleas, wisteria, lightning bugs and mud. Kashoogie, where this world premiere musical is set, was conjured by this tale’s creators — playwright Janece Shaffer, composer S. Renee Clark and director Rosemary Newcott, who began brainstorming about it over coffee some 15 months ago. Shaffer (Geller Girls, Broke) is having quite a year. Troubadour, her first world premiere musical at the Alliance, ran in January and February. Newcott’s been having quite a year for many years. In her 20-plus Alliance seasons she’s directed a clutch of Christmas Carols and pretty much everything the company does for families, tweens and the very young. Clark — the “S” stands for Sandra — is the new kid on the block, so to speak. This is her 10 ENCOREATLANTA.COM

first time composing for an Alliance project, but she’s a friendly and familiar face in Atlanta theater circles and well beyond as a performer, music director, arranger and composer. She’s also in her eighth season as assistant choral director at Tri-Cities High School in East Point, and a two-time Suzi Bass Award winner, for Avenue Q at Horizon Theatre (2011) and Big River at Theatrical Outfit (2009). Clark’s fans are many and far-flung, a group that includes pretty much anyone who has ever worked with her: • “ Working with Renee is like going home after school with your best friend and making something together, and then having so much fun and being so excited and creative you can’t stop,” says Theatrical Outfit Artistic Director Tom Key. • “Renee is one of the most gifted musicians that I have ever known,” says Atlanta-based director and actor Heidi Cline McKerley, a frequent collaborator. “There are three things that influence how she swings a

musical theater score: She is the daughter of a preacher, so she has an enormous background in inspirational/church music; she is gifted in the jazz genre; and she is classically trained. Renee always takes what is on the page and makes it better.” • “She is a consummate professional and perfectionist with exacting attention to detail that makes her music soar,” says Lisa Adler, co-artistic director at Horizon Theatre, where Clark has worked off and on since 2000. At Horizon, Clark usually plays keyboard and leads the band as well as music-directing. This is “a joy,” says Adler, “because she keeps the level of musical performance very high. There is no slacking off when Renee is leading the charge!” This version of the Cinderella fable has been in the works for two summers, two falls, one spring and three winters. Clark, Newcott and Shaffer would meet at San Francisco

Roasting Co. on North Highland Avenue and talk. About life. About girls. About the various versions of Cinderella around the world, how they felt about Disney’s Cinderella and how they felt about being girls. “The first four or five months we would just talk to each other,” Clark says, “and share our really personal stories of growing up. As we talked, the characters started developing.” Then came the first of several workshops, with performers joining the discussion. First the actresses came in and talked about what it was like to be a little girl. Then the actors came in and talked about what it was like to be a little boy. “Janece and I would smile at each other across the room,” Clark says. “From the start, what was interesting to me was to write a Cinderella where the women weren’t all mean,” Shaffer says. “I wanted a Cinderella where the magic is accessible. Moonflowers, moss, ladybugs and imagination are all right in your backyard.” ALLIANCETHEATRE.ORG

This is also a Cinderella that champions friendship, not romance. And friendship is what made creating it so joyful. It stems from Rosemary, Shaffer says, “because she is the most generous collaborator and is still delighted by the process and the discoveries and trusts everyone to bring in their best.” “Renee is fantastic at what she does,” Shaffer says. “She understands where we need music to lift the story and tell it in a different way. She’s incredibly inventive. Her instincts are great.” “Renee is so inventive and so much fun,” says Newcott. “She really pays attention to both the character’s journey and the particular gifts of each performer. “I am also extremely impressed by her ability to vocal coach. She has a great ear and great patience. Her composition is also eclectic in ways that perfectly fit the tone of the play.” 12 ENCOREATLANTA.COM

Clark, known as “an expert practitioner of tough love” (McKerley), scored Cinderella and Fella for two violins, guitar, piano and percussion. She’ll be on the piano during performances and plays Cinderella’s mother. “It’s just a couple of lines,” she says. “But you know I love to have my acting moments.” With this Alliance premiere, Cinderella and Fella joins the thousands of stories — dating to A.D. 860 in China — about an unfortunate young woman whose kindnesses lead to remarkable fortune. “I am so giddy, excited about the possibilities of what this could become,” Clark says. “We spend so much time in front of screens with our heads down,” Shaffer says. “At the end of this I want people to go into their backyard or to the park and see all the wonders waiting there for them.” Another takeaway, she says: “Kindness really matters.” A

The Dramaturgy by Students program is a “real world” project offered by the Alliance Arts for Learning Institute in which an Alliance Institute teaching artist collaborates with a classroom teacher and students who serve as Jr. Dramaturgs for an Alliance stage production. The Jr. Dramaturgs’ research process includes reading the play, researching the author of the source material, characters, settings, historical and science content and other subjects that may provide information for the audience, director, actors and designers of the play. 24 ENCOREATLANTA.COM


cinderella around the world Cinderella is a story of true love, but it is mostly about her perseverance through difficulty. Cinderella teaches the reader to be kind and loving no matter what. No one knows exactly how many versions of Cinderella exist, but it could be anywhere from 340 to 3,000! The Chinese and Egyptian versions are the first accounts of the story. Both were written in the first century B.C. The Chinese version is called Yeh Shen. The Egyptian Cinderella was recorded by Roman historians and is thought to be the oldest telling of the story.

jr. dramaturgs Director Rosemary Newcott asked the third-grade Jr. Dramaturg students at The Museum School of Avondale Estates to consider these questions as they read the script and researched themes and topics for Cinderella and Fella. Here are their answers. What are yours? One of the main ideas in Cinderella and Fella is friendship. What qualities does a best friend need? “Best friends need to know your feeling[s] and care about your feeling[s].” — Tommy M., Age 9 “You are always going to need help in your life so your best friend should be there to help you.” — Lela M., Age 8 “A best friend has to be understanding so you can agree on things and work together.” — Mattie K., Age 9 “A best friend is willing to try new things with you.” “A best friend needs to have kindness because no one wants a friend who isn’t nice.” — Henry H., Age 9 “To be respectful.”

— Patrick B., Age 8

“Best friends are happy for each other, not jealous.” — Tommy M. and Harding W., Age 9 Nature also plays an important role in this play. What part does the natural world have in the telling of this story? “This story shows us that nature can provide things that we need and want. It gave Cinderella a dress and it gave Maurice happiness and freedom. Nature also taught Maurice to have a new outlook on things. Nature also provides some important characters in the show. Mother Tree and Frog are critical to the story. The other animals use their nature to be humorous, such as porcupine with his “sticky” jokes. Nature is very important to this play.” — Tommy, Patrick, Mattie, Lela, Henry, and Harding

discover us. discover you. discover us. discover you. Cinderella and Fella provides a fresh and surprising take on the classic fairy tale. In the fictional kingdom of Kashoogie, the pampered prince Maurice prepares for the Royal Boy-Be-Gonna, where he’ll search for a royal “cohort” instead of a princess. The traditional narrative of a pining young woman scrambling to be chosen as the prince’s bride has been remixed. This time, Cinderella’s stepbrother and stepsister are both equally eligible, and the grand prize is the opportunity to take a grand adventure around the country with the prince. The overworked and underappreciated Cinderella doesn’t need a fairy godmother, either. She has the strength, determination and the help of her animal friends to get her to that infamous Royal Boy-Be-Gonna. The play does a nice job of incorporating hip hop cultural elements into the classic tale, while removing the traditional “damsel in distress” narrative. We learn that this timeless tale can be infused with a contemporary sensibility and made relatable, to be enjoyed by future generations to come. Cara Reese, second-grade teacher Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School

synopsis: A magical retelling of the Cinderella story that’s more high-tops than glass slipper and is fueled by the magic of lightning bugs, singing cicadas and oozing mud. Our young prince, who was raised by an overbearing parent, searches the kingdom for a best friend ready for adventure. Our Cinderella, who has spent countless days pulling her ungrateful stepmother around in her tiny house, fits the bill.

about the alliance theatre The Alliance Theatre is Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds on stage and off. Founded in 1968, the Alliance Theatre is the leading producing theater in the Southeast, reaching more than 165,000 patrons annually. The Alliance delivers powerful programming that challenges adult and youth audiences to think critically and care deeply. Under the leadership of Susan V. Booth, Jennings Hertz Artistic Director, the Alliance Theatre received the Regional Theatre Tony Award® in recognition of sustained excellence in programming, education, and community engagement. Known for its high artistic standards and national role in creating significant theatrical works, the Alliance has premiered more than 100 original productions including Tony Award® winners The Color Purple by Alice Walker, Aida by Elton John and Tim Rice, and Alfred Uhry’s The Last Night of Ballyhoo. The Alliance has developed and premiered important American musicals with a strong track record of Broadway, touring, and subsequent productions, including the world premieres of Sister Act: The Musical, Twyla Tharp’s Come Fly Away, Bring It On: The Musical, Stephen King and John Mellencamp’s Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, the world premiere of the new musical Tuck Everlasting, and most recently, Born for This: the BeBe Winans Story. The Alliance also creates and nurtures the careers of artists through the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, producing the world premiere for the competition winner as part of the regular season, and the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab, providing developmental support and production resources for three performing arts projects each year. The Alliance’s dedication to providing access to the arts is reflected in its commitment to creating new work for all ages, and to bringing that work into classrooms and communities across Atlanta and throughout the region. More than 50,000 students each year experience age-specific professional performances and participate in acting classes, drama camps, and in-school initiatives through the Alliance Theatre Acting Program and Education Department. The Alliance’s groundbreaking Kathy and Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young performances offer professionally-produced, fully interactive theater for infants and toddlers; the Palefsky Collision Project invites high school artists to create and perform new civic-minded theater based on a classic text; and community acting classes and skill-building workshops engage professional artists, young actors, business leaders, and curious learners of all ages. Twice recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for leadership in arts education, the Alliance Arts for Learning Institute equips classroom teachers with theatrical techniques that link directly to school curriculum and have been empirically proven to improve student learning. These programs include Georgia Wolf Trap Early Learning Through the Arts and Dramaturgy by Students, in which students create research material that informs Alliance productions and prepares peer audiences. The work produced by the Alliance allows locally based artists the chance to create on a nationally watched stage, building and sustaining Atlanta’s artistic community. The vision of the Alliance Theatre is to be a beacon of leadership for the national field, while remaining deeply rooted in and reflective of our local Atlanta community. MISSION Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds on stage and off. VISION The Alliance will lead the national field by deeply engaging with its local community, modeling radical inclusion and catalytic experiences on our stages, in our classrooms, and throughout Atlanta. alliancetheatre.org or 404.733.4650
