THREE EN­CHANT­ING FAIRY­TALES

Where Calgary - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Sto­ry­book Theatre’s orig­i­nal, kid-friendly mu­si­cal Ur­ban Jun­gle Book (March 3 - 18) is a retelling of Rud­yard Ki­pling’s sto­ries, made ac­ces­si­ble to mod­ern au­di­ences with rock, pop, hip-hop, and rap mu­sic (page 33).

Rodgers and Ham­mer­stein’s Cin­derella (April 25 - 30, pic­tured) is a stage rein­ven­tion of the 1957 tele­vi­sion spe­cial from the duo who cre­ated Ok­la­homa! and The King and I. This Broad­way Across Canada makeover breathes fresh life into the clas­sic tale of Cin­derella and her evil step­mother and step­sis­ters. While there are a few new twists, you’ll still hear the beloved mu­sic from the orig­i­nal tele­vi­sion spe­cial, in­clud­ing “In My Own Lit­tle Cor­ner” and “Ten Min­utes Ago" (page 34).

Tum­ble down the rab­bit hole with Alberta Bal­let’s pro­duc­tion of Alice in Won­der­land (March 16 - 18). Filled with lush sets, cos­tumes, and chore­og­ra­phy, this pro­duc­tion cap­tures the magic of spunky hero­ine Alice try­ing to make her way home through a strange and fan­tas­ti­cal world (page 32).
