SPARKS — TheatreWorks of Northern Nevada presents an original play “Cinders,” an adaption of Cinderella, written and directed by Sandra Brunell Neace. The play runs 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. A matinee performance will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday. All performances will be held at the Laxalt Auditorium, 401 W. Second Street in Reno.

Title role Cinders is an overweight teenage girl. She’s the focus of serious bullying. Set in present day where bullying has become an epidemic, the play shines light on the issues teenage girls face with their body image and how media plays a large role in fueling the problem. There’s intelligent humor mixed in adding light moments. Cinders has a trailer trash, demanding, evil stepmother who married into money. She also has two stepsisters. Fortunately, one stepsister is sympathetic to Cinders and she has loyal friends too. It’s the sincere hope that those who see this play will be better equipped to handle bullying whether it’s against them or if they observe it. Also, to stop themselves if they realize they have been cruel to others and to become empathetic and respectful despite outward appearances.

Sandra Brunell Neace directs a cast of teens and adults in this TheatreWorks spring production.

Cinders is recommended for ages 13 and older. Tickets cost $10 for general admission and $7 for students and seniors and may be purchased at www.twnn.org or by calling 284-0789.
