After touring to over a dozen Detroit schools and festivals, The Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance has brought Cynthia Mercati’s delightful children’s show, Cinderella, or It’s OK to Be Different, to The Hilberry Theatre

In Cinderella, or It’s OK to be Different, a group of lively students discover that their familiar Cinderella story isn’t the only one – that there was a Cinderella in ancient Egypt and one among the Algonquin Indians and that there are hundreds of Cinderella tales all around the world! In an innovative, sophisticated, and theatrical style, this fast-paced, up-beat, multicultural show focuses on the universality of folk literature and finds that it’s okay to be different.

Performances of Cinderella, or It’s OK to be Different will play at the Hilberry Theatre on June 27, June 28 and June 30. Individual Tickets are $5 for children and $8 for adults. There is a $5 per ticket price for groups of 10 or more. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Hilberry Theatre Box Office at 313-577-2972, online at, or by visiting the box office at 4743 Cass Ave. on the corner of Cass Ave. and Hancock. The summer Box Office hours are Tuesday – Friday from 10 – 2 p.m. The box office will be open one hour prior to all performances.
