Wayne State University’s Detroit Youth Theatre and Dance Journey will perform the children’s play Cinderella or It’s OK to be Different at the North Rosedale Park June Day Celebration on Saturday, June 8th at 12 PM on the main stage at the Community House.

This tale of Cinderella takes place on a school playground as 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.

The free performance is part of the inaugural season of the Detroit Youth Theatre and Dance Journey sponsored by the Maggie Allesee Department of Theatre and Dance at WSU. Other performances will take place at the Hilberry Theatre and several Detroit Public Schools.  For more information visit the Hilberry Theatre website at www.hilberry.com.
