Previews

Cinderella (Emily Hollowell) and Prince Charming (Will Leonard) dance at the ball in Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre’s production of Cinderella, now on stage through March 17. The first show of the 2018 Live Theatre for Kids series presented by the Pyramid Players, this adaptation of the classic tale is told in a fast-paced, tuneful comedy. Pyramid Players productions are one hour in length and presented without intermission. Performances are for all ages, but offered particularly for children in preschool through sixth grade. Children have the opportunity to meet the cast after each show for pictures and autographs. Performances take place at 10 a.m. on Fridays and at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturdays. All tickets are $16.50 and include a snack. For reservations, contact the box office at 317.872.9664. For more information or complete show schedule, visit www.beefandboards.com.
