LWC students Audrianna Clark of Lebanon, Ky., and Brandon Wood of Columbia rehearse for the Nov. 19 children's production of   Cinderella. Clark plays Cinderella, and Wood plays the Prince.

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- A children's play isn't just for children.

In the mind of LWC Associate Professor of Communication Susan Minton, the story of Cinderella is a timeless escape for adults and children alike "from what might be a bad day." 

Students in Minton's theater classes will perform Cinderella 7 p.m. CT Thursday, Nov. 19, in Lindsey Wilson College's V. P. Henry Auditorium. The performance -- which will come after two days of performing it for area school children -- is free and open to the public.

For a few minutes, Cinderella, run ragged by her famously wicked step-sisters and step-mother, can have a bad day and audience members can watch.

"Cinderella is my favorite fairytale of them all, and most children's favorite," Minton said. "We want to expose the community, its children and the student body at Lindsey Wilson College to children's theater. We want audience members to recapture a part of childhood they may have forgotten, or perhaps hadn't experienced before"

Minton said the performance of Cinderella is "an opportunity for the student body to come out and support their fellow students and relax, all on a college student's budget." Young and old can "let their guard down and experience the wonders of theater. And perhaps learn a lesson or two along the way," she said.

Minton's theater students while be joined by students from her "Freshman Experience" class, who will be the evening's opening act.

In a series of brief skits, the "Freshman Experience" students will reenact incidents that had happened to them or to others during the semester.

In the best tradition of the theater, "our student players will have the chance to touch lives," Minton said. "They'll learn that acting is more than just being in a play."
