What: Ella Enchanted
When: February 3, 2017 – March 19, 2017
Where: Adventure Theatre
7300 MacArthur Blvd., Glen Echo, MD. 20812
Why: Based on the Newberry Honor book by Gail Carson Levine. Baby Ella of Frell is given the “gift” of obedience by Lucinda, a misguided fairy, and thus cannot disobey any direct order. Then when tragedy strikes, Ella is reduced to an obedient servant in her new home with Dame Olga. Can Ella find a way to rid herself of the troublesome curse?
This version has it’s own spin on the original but stays pretty true to the beloved book. We particularly took notice of Ella’s ability to overcome the hardships she was dealt through creativity and staying true to herself– an important lesson for our young theatre go-ers. As you can see in the photo above, the creativity of the birds are truly magical.
Details: Running time is 60 minutes with no intermission. Recommended for all ages.
