Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the theatre, we are BACK with this year’s Off Broadway Alliance WINNER for BEST FAMILY SHOW! Follow a poor troupe of “Italian” actors as they present a hilarious musical romp through the well-known fairy tale Cinderella, with daffy llamas, roller skating fairy godmothers, selfie taking step sisters, Carol Channing, and furry kicks standing in for the traditional glass slippers!
Our adaptation is performed in the street theater style known as Commedia dell’arte with larger-than-life characters, colorful song and dance numbers, tons of pop culture references and a great message on self-worth for kids. “Perfect for all ages and people attending, with or without kids in tow.” (BroadwayWorld.com)
WINNER OF THE OFF BROADWAY ALLIANCE “BEST FAMILY SHOW 2017” !!
WINNER FOR BEST PERFORMING ARTS COMPANY IN DOWNTOWN MANHATTAN FOR THE KIDSPASS PARENT’S CHOICE AWARD 2016
Ragtag Theatre Company is a LGBTQ-friendly Commedia dell’Arte troupe dedicated to creating fresh, modern family theater.
We do fairytales. But not yo mama’s fairytales. We do fractured fairytales that spoof and riff off of pop culture… (much like Animaniacs or Shrek), and we do it all in the style of Commedia dell’Arte, which is an early style of Italian street theatre that incorporates big funny characters, improvisation, and direct audience involvement all in one. Our shows are audience interactive and the kids are integrated into every performance, making them feel uniquely important in this theatrical experience. Ultimately, our goal is the make you laugh and we hope to empower and inspire all youngins and grown folk alike to embrace what makes them different.
