Bag&Baggage Presents Lotte Grimm’s Cinderella: A Story of Sisterhood and Magic
All Ages
More info: bagnbaggage.org

We all know the story: the fairy godmother, the glass slipper, the evil stepmother and stepsisters, the handsome prince. But where exactly did the story of Cinderella come from? Bag&Baggage Productions, Hillsboro’s resident professional theatre company, is thrilled to present its first ever show for young audiences this spring, putting a fresh and exciting spin on the Cinderella we think we all know so well, with Lotte Grimm’s Cinderella: A Story of Sisterhood and Magic.

Charlotte Grimm (called Lotte for short), the only sister of the famous Brothers Grimm, simply cannot cook one more meal or wash one more pair of underpants. When her friend Dortchen suggests taking a trip to lift her spirits, Lotte sets off on a journey that quickly turns magical. Meeting three different “Cinderellas” from stories told around the world, Lotte comes to realize that sometimes a little kindness can make even the dirtiest dishes a little more enjoyable to wash, and that there really is no substitute for family and friendship.

Lotte Grimm’s Cinderella: A Story of Sisterhood and Magic has been created and developed over the course of Bag&Baggage’s 2017-18 season as part of B&B’s Emerging Artist Program, and features the writing, design, and acting talents of Emerging Artists (EAs) Renée Zipp, Grant Thackray, Carlee Whalen, and Tiffany Rousseau.

“We began with the texts of Grimm’s fairytales, and asked our EAs to dig in and start doing research, following the leads that most piqued their interest,” says B&B Associate Artistic Director Cassie Greer, who oversees the Emerging Artist Program and directs the show. “We all became fascinated with the lives of the whole Grimm family, and decided to use Lotte – and the whole concept of trying to find your way as a young woman – as the lens through which we explored the text.”

Lotte Grimm’s Cinderella is created specifically for audiences aged 6-12, allowing B&B to add a new generation of theatre-goers to its established audience base. “Opening up our work specifically to a younger audience is something we’ve been looking forward to being able to do for years,” says B&B Founding Artistic Director Scott Palmer. “With the Emerging Artist Program and our new home in The Vault, we have an ability to serve the youngest generation of our community that we’ve never had before.”

The B&B Emerging Artist Program is a 10-month long program providing across-the-board theatrical training and on-the-job experience to four early career theatre professionals. Rousseau, Thackray, Whalen, and Zipp have been with the company since August, their work culminating in the creation of this show. And in addition to writing and acting in Lotte Grimm’s Cinderella, the EAs are also responsible for all of the design elements of the production, making use of the breadth of training they have received over their months at B&B.
