After a long and exhaustive period of research (translation: we looked it up on Wikipedia), CoolCleveland can reveal that, while 17th-century French author Charles Perrault is often credited for the best-known telling of “Cinderella,” the folklore precursors of the classic fairy tale go all the way back to 7 B.C., with a tale of a humble slave girl who winds up marrying a mighty Pharoah (and her name…Melania! OK, just kidding about that part).

Now revised versions and modernizations continue. The latest is at the Beck Center in Lakewood. Young students enrolled in the arts center’s theater classes present director Russell Stich’s own original, contemporary reboot Cinder-Ella, in which a Fairy Godfather and mice strike a most un-Disney vibe.

Tickets range from $10 to $12.
