If you loved the movie starring Ann Hatheway, you won’t want to miss Sychronicity’s adaptation of ELLA ENCHANTED.
The story, adapted by Karen Zacarias from the Newbery Award-Winning book by Gail Carson Levine, is a retelling of Cinderella. As a baby, Ella was given the “gift” to obey every command. Forced to do whatever is asked, including rubbing her stepsister’s stinky feet, Ella fights for independence. She sets out on an extraordinary journey to battle ogres, befriend a prince, and crash a giant’s wedding to find her fairy Godmother, Lucinda, to undo the spell. ELLA ENCHANTED explores what it means to find your voice and decide your own fate.
Ella Enchanted is directed by Jenna Tamisiea. The cast includes Atlanta-based actors L’Oréal Roaché as Ella, a Kennesaw State University student starring in her first professional role, Alex Harding as Prince Char, also from Kennesaw State University in his first starring role, Marcie Millard as Mother, Robert Hindsman as Sir Peter, Amy Reynolds as Lucinda, Meg Harkins as Hattie, and Alexandria Joy as Olive. The ensemble will also be playing multiple roles.
