School ends soon for most students but for those stage-struck individuals wanting to pursue a chance to perform in the show, The Barn Kids take to the stage in June to present the kids’ version of Disney’s “Cinderella–Kids,” performed by students in grades 3-7, a spokesman for The Barn announced.

The live action version of the Disney classic “Cinderella-kids” runs June 17-19 at The Barn Players Playhouse as The Barn’s summer theater program for children begins. Under the direction of Diane Boulan, workshop and production director, the children’s charming fairytale comes to life in a live-action performance.

The songs from the animated feature of the same name are included in the children’s performance. The cast performs “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” and the classic “Bibbidi-Boppidi-Boo.”

The production culminates a summer theater workshop where the youngsters learn about theater and stage presentations.

According to The Barn, the Disney classic finds a sad Cinderella, mistreated by her sisters and step-mother,
and denied a chance to go to the Royal Ball. Cinderella dreams of a better life, but she sees no chance to change her life. When things look hopeless, a little help from her mice friends and Fairy Godmother, make Cinderella’s dreams come true. She attends the ball, meets the Prince, and falls in love. With only Cinderella’s glass slipper left behind, the Prince scours the Kingdom to find the foot that it fits. It’s a happy ending as the curtain falls. Cinderella and the Prince live happily ever-after.

The Barn Kids present “Cinderella–Kids” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday – Thursday, June 17 – 19, at The Barn Players Theatre, 6219 Martway in Mission, Kan.
