Photo: GEOFF MARSHALL Be prepared for a slightly naughty but entertaining version of the Cinderella story when Cinderella -- A Girl of Today opens at Mana Little Theatre later this month. While still retaining some of the traditional elements of pantomime, this production has been brought up to date with the introduction of popular music and dancing. It has an adapted script that hopes to keep audiences laughing. It has been rewritten to appeal to adult audiences but is still appropriate for older children. The characters include a sweet but politically correct Cinderella, her dithering father, an overbearing stepmother, and of course the two demanding, spoilt and badly behaved stepsisters. There is an interesting mix of other characters, including two Fairy Godmothers, a faithful servant, the Prince and his valet, and the local press. For the first time at Mana Little Theatre, actors are tackling the art of pole dancing and negotiating a revolving stage. The result of this, under the joint direction of Stephanie Drew and Sue Mortimer, are antics that should keep young theatre-goers smiling long after the show has finished. Performances are April 25-27, 8pm; April 28, 3pm and May 1-4, 8pm, Mana Little Theatre, Sunset Parade, Plimmerton. Bookings are essential, phone 233 2557. 3 Raiha Street, Elsdon, Porirua.

On April 26, preschoolers' minds will be immersed in the work of Margaret Mahy, then author-illustrator Gavin Bishop on May 1. That afternoon will also feature a session for older kids themed around Lindy Fisher. A preschoolers' session on Kyle Mewburn (Melu) will be held on May 2, before a session on May 3 celebrating the NZ Post Children's Book Awards. All preschooler sessions will be held in the library alcove from 10.15am. The intermediate level workshops will be in Pataka's performing arts studio from 2pm to 3.30pm.
