Cinderella Panel: Making Fairy Tales More Inclusive

Select Dates Below

All Ages



Fairy tales are stories we love to come back to over and over again. They’ve been passed down from generations and are some of the first stories we fall in love with. Since these stories are so beloved, how do we make them look and feel more inclusive? Or are there brand new fairy tales waiting to be shared in the years to come.

Join us for this discussion before the evening production of Cinderella on November 27th at The Paramount Theatre. Panelists are:

Cinderella Director: Brenda Didier

Aurora Children’s Librarian: Gretchen Schulz

Aurora Youth Services Manager: Simon Rodriguez

House Theater of Chicago Artistic Director: Lanise Antoine Shelley

Moderated by Paramount EDI Leader: Christian Hubbard
