To cover her tattered dress after leaving the ball too late, Cinderella dons a red cape, confusing a passing wolf that mistakes her for another fairy tale character.

"This is a Fractured Fairy Tale musical. It's very funny. It's a silly cute story I think children will enjoy," said Barbara Lynn Feldman, Storyland Theatre's founder, about the latest production from the children's theater group, Mademoiselle Hood Meets Le Wolf.
Written by Augusta State University professor Rick Davis, the play has been staged before, but has been revised since its last performance five years ago.
North Augusta's Susan Frank composed the music for the show and will play the piano for the performances. Frank has been working with Storyland Theatre for about 13 years and is the music director at Lakeside Baptist Church in Clearwater.
For Derek Faglier, this will be his first appearance with Storyland Theatre. He will be performing for a special audience during one of the school shows. His mother will be bringing her kindergarten class to watch.
Faglier, a former student of Davis at ASU, plays Zak, a bumbling police officer.
"I know the person who wrote this so it gives a little more meaning and depth," he said. "I've acted with Rick before and can see where he was going with things. It makes it amusing."
