If the Slipper Fits 

In another tale as old as time, sweet, beautiful Cinderella is born to a wealthy, loving father who cares for her deeply. His untimely death lands his only biological daughter in the untoward hands of a bitter, jealous stepmother. Though she becomes a lowly scullery maid in her own home, kindhearted Cinderella takes it all in stride -- until she loses that fateful slipper. Get swept up in the beauty and comic lightness of this tale-turned-ballet (adapted from the Grimm Brothers' much darker story) June 1 to June 3, as the Missouri Ballet Theatre performs Cinderella at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-935-6543). Tickets range from $20 to $38, and showtimes vary. For young balletgoers, the Edison Theatre is hosting prince and princess parties including story time with the Fairy Godmother, waltzing lessons and photo opportunities with the ensemble prior to matinee performances.
