Gadzooks! Cinderella

an original panto by Nick Schweitzer

with additional lyrics by Stephen F. Murray and Alex Lingren

Mercury Players Theatre 

at Stoughton Village Players, Stoughton, WI

December 4 & 5, 2015


at the Bartell Theatre, Madison, WI

December 11-19, 2015


Nick Schweitzer's original Panto infuses new life into the holiday tradition. This is not your normal Cinderella but rather a Monty Python-esque romp through the classic fairytale complete with cross dressing, pies to the face, and dancing cows. Mercury Players Theatre is starting a new Madison holiday tradition.

"...the show is a new tradition to be a part of during the holiday season. Not everything has to be Tiny Tim and "Humbug." Many thanks to Mercury Players Theatre for reminding us of that."
