About the Show
Alpha’s Cinderella is probably the show with the chance for the audience to interact the most! More songs, kids on stage and three villains! Children are ready to protest the injustice served up to Cinderella by her stepsisters and the Evil Stepmother, as this is often the most relevant to how a child can feel.
Cinderella as a result sometimes feels like she’s not good enough, so the Fairy Godmother helps her by taking her and the audience on a beautifully guided journey called an ’emotional flood’, that can invigorate all the love and joy you need in any moment. The Prince himself is not perfect and gets help to overcome his fears of dancing!
This show will have you dancing and singing – maybe even on stage! – for days and weeks to come.
Values Theme: SELF-WORTH
Outcome: To bring an understanding of why most of us feel unworthy of love – due to our experiences in early childhood and the unloving treatment many of us receive despite a parents good intentions.
Cinderella has a belief that she is not “worthy” of going to the ball, or doesn’t feel she deserves it. We all have these fears and especially young girls, even at a young age, can start to feel unworthy, not good enough etc. How many times in life have we ‘played small’, not tried to do something because you didn’t think you were good enough or worthy enough to do it.
Like Cinderella, we sometimes accept those things that aren’t fair or at a good enough standard to live an outstanding life because we don’t think we’re worth it, we don’t even believe in ourselves enough. This show contains a process designed to heal these wounds. Download Curriculum Documents
