Letter: Time is running out for the public to see ‘Cinderella’

Time is running out to see the last Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival (KCFAF) event of the year, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.” After a successful first run, the show is scheduled to have one more weekend of performances, beginning on Friday, July 20, through Sunday, July 22. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7 p.m., and the Sunday performance begins at 2 p.m.

Besides the popular music, classic fairytale storyline and the state-of-the-art facility, patrons of the show were pleased to make crowns and wands with their children (for free), as well as have the opportunity for a photo shoot with some of the characters after the show (for a small donation).

Adults appreciated the family-friendly atmosphere and the affordable ticket prices. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students/senior citizens and $25 for the Family Ticket. The Family Ticket admits all members currently living in one household for the single price of $25. Tickets are available online (www.kanelandartsfestival.org) and at the box office an hour before the show begins.

Parents are reminded to bring a camera for the photo shoot after the program, but flash photography and video recording are not allowed during the performance. It is suggested that patrons bring a light sweater or jacket for the performance, as the Kaneland Auditorium is air conditioned.

The Kaneland Auditorium is located on the campus of Kaneland High School, 47W326 Keslinger Road, Maple Park, IL 60151. Inquiries should be directed to Maria Dripps-Paulson, executive director of the KCFAF, at maria.drippspaulson@kaneland.org.
