A poor shoemaker and his wife need money to pay the rent, but they give away their last pair of shoes to a lady in need and have only enough leather for one more pair. He cuts out pieces to sew on the morrow. Elves come in the night and make the shoes, which he sells for more than his asking price the next day. The shoemaker uses the money to pay the rent, buy food and to buy more shoe leather, and he feeds a poor traveler. That night, he cuts pieces again and retires for the night. The elves come again and make TWO pairs of shoes. The shoemaker gives away one pair to someone in need, sells the other pair and buys more leather.  Then, he stays up to find the elves making the shoes. In gratitude, the shoemaker and his wife make clothes for the elves, who are freed by the gift.  The shoemaker and his wife never see the elves again. December 3-6, 2015.

Cinderella
(CYT Junior Company)
Made most famous by The Brothers Grimm, the story of Cinderella tells us of a young girl, victimized by two horrid stepsisters and their nasty mother.  Forced into servitude when her father marries, the girl of the cinders wishes to go to the Prince's ball and, with the help of her fairy godmother, gets her wish... though only until midnight. The Prince falls in love with Cinderella, but loses her after the ball, only finding a single glass slipper as a clue.  His quest begins to find his love, and the Prince searches his kingdom until he finds his true diamond-in-the-rough Princess. June 2-5, 2016.

CYT's Young Adult Company production will take place in July, 2016.  Additional details will be forthcoming in the new year.  This program is open to young adults in 9th grade through their senior year in college (unless otherwise noted). Productions performed are chosen from the large Broadway repertoire and are not necessarily literature based.
