Bug City or Bust! – Cinderella Caterpillar
Concord, NH (February 14th, 2014) – The Junior Service League presents Cinderella Caterpillar. An annual spring tradition for the Concord community. Directed by Karen Braz, co-founder of the award winning Children’s Theatre Project and performed by the members of the JSL . Generously sponsored by Modern Woodmen of America.
Kids and adults of all ages will be a-buzz with laughter at this extremely clever, cute-as-a-bug, fast paced comedy, which will be held at St. Paul’s School’s Memorial Hall on Friday, March 14th at 7p.m. and Saturday, March 15th at 1p.m. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door.
This savvy spoof turns the age-old love story into a modern day bug story with a fresh original twist! Prince Grasshopper, the top pop idol in Bug City, announces on live TV that he's seeking a princess to share the spotlight with him and his current sidekick, the no-talent Queen Bea. When naive caterpillar Cinderella shows up in Big City wanting to be a star and immediately catches Prince's eye, Queen Bea seethes with jealousy. She and her cohort Bugsy declare a midnight deadline and do everything possible to shoo Cinderella from the set. Just when it seems Prince and Cinderella have found each other, Queen Bea puts a bug in Cinderella's ear, convincing her she's an "ugly bug" and would ruin Prince's career. Ouch!
Will Queen Bea's sting get the best of Cinderella, or will the caterpillar keep inching on toward her dream? What will become of Connie Cockroach, whose doting stage mother, Stepmother Spider (a black widow whose husbands have all met with mysterious ends) pushes her to audition when all Connie wants to do is eat snack food?
Proceeds from the play will provide back-to-school clothing and supplies to schools in the Concord Community.
