Cinderella in Song

There are no sets, costumes or acting and it’s not a play. It is a musical story but director Garrett Brown admits that The True Story of Cinderella is hard to describe. “It’s a very serious voice recital ... completely deadpan but very funny.”

Mr. Brown will be at the piano at the Old Whaling Church while his cast of 13 sit and perform their characters, in all different styles of music, for Island Theatre Workshop’s Cinderella performances on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 plus a nonperishable item for the Island Food Pantry, at the door. The shows benefit the Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust.
