BELLE OF THE BALL
By Craig Sodaro
3 m, 7 w
Script: 36 pages
The fairy tales of Cinderella and Snow White are lassoed together in this high-kicking western melodrama! Goldie Miner had to give up her infant daughter, Ashabelle, 18 years ago to eke out a living panning for gold, but she thought she left her with a good family. Now she's returned with plenty of gold for her daughter but finds Ashabelle wears patched clothes and does all the stepfamily's chores. When Ashabelle isn't allowed to go to the ball, her mother fixes her right up, including a pair of new boots. The next morning Earnest Lee Feelgoode finds the belle of the ball he fell in love with, but before they can be wed, Black Jack Ketchum gives Ashabelle a poisoned apple so he can get her gold. But as in all melodramas, good wins out over evil and after a romp through the audience, there's a happy, fairy tale ending. Performance time about an hour.
