The Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance launches its inaugural Detroit Youth Theatre and Dance Journey with the children’s play Cinderella or It’s Okay to Be Different by Cynthia Mercati. The play travels to eleven different Detroit Public Elementary Schools throughout the month of June. It plays at the Hilberry Theatre June 20 - 30.

This tale of Cinderella takes place on a school playground as a group of lively students discover that their familiar Cinderella story isn't the only one - that there was a Cinderella in ancient Egypt and one among the Algonquin Indians and that there are hundreds of Cinderella tales all around the world! In an innovative, sophisticated, and theatrical style, this fast-paced, up-beat, multicultural show focuses on the universality of folk literature and finds that it's okay to be different.

Individual Tickets are $5 for children and $8 for adults. There is a $5 per ticket price for groups of 10 or more. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Hilberry Theatre Box Office at 313-577-2972, online at www.wsushows.com, or by visiting the box office at 4743 Cass Ave. on the corner of Cass Ave. and Hancock. The summer Box Office hours are Tuesday – Friday from 10 – 2 p.m. The box office will be open one hour prior to all performances.
