Sally Netzel designed her two-act play so that each scene flows smoothly into the next without a break in the action. All the ingredients that have made the story a perennial favorite are here: dirty, ragged, pitiful, but optimistic and loving Cinderella; her cruel stepmother and selfish stepsisters; the ball and the handsome prince looking for a bride, the fairy godmother; the glass slipper and the search for the foot that fits it, and the happily-ever-after ending. Netzel's sense of humor and her ability to develop captivating characters and invent charming scenes make this dramatization outstanding. Cinderella is a real person, with the hopes and petulance and frustration and love that modern young people experience when their fantasies seem to be impossible dreams.
