ACT 1, Scene 1 | A Day in the Life
NARRATOR: This is the tale of Cinderella, a young woman who lived with her cruel stepmother and two stepsisters. Life was not easy for Cinderella. You don’t believe me? Let’s take a look.
STEPMOTHER: Where is that girl? I want my tea!
STEPSISTER #1: I want my bath!
STEPSISTER #2: I want my manicure!
CINDERELLA: Here’s your tea, Stepmother. Your bath is ready, Stepsister. And we can start the manicure.
STEPMOTHER: The tea better be strong enough. What TOOK you so long?
STEPSISTER #1: My bath better be warm enough!
STEPSISTER #2: My nails aren’t going to paint themselves!
NARRATOR: And that’s what every moment in the day was like for Cinderella.
CINDERELLA: Whew! At least late at night I get to read by candlelight. Thank goodness my mother taught me how to read and left me her books before she died.
NARRATOR: Cinderella doesn’t know it, but the very next day there is going to be a royal announcement. One that will change her life.
