Everybody knows the Brothers Grimm’s most famous fairy tale. But what if they told it from the wrong point of view? “Stepsisters,” tells the totally-true-and-not-at-all-made-up version of the little cinder girl.

Friday Harbor Middle School and the San Juan Community Theatre proudly present “Stepsisters,” directed by Jenni Merrit.

“Stepsisters” runs from Thursday, March 28 through Saturday, March 30, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunda, March 31, at 2 p.m. at San Juan Community Theatre. Tickets for adults are $18, $10 for students and $5 student rush at the door. Thursday is pay what you can night.

When Drew and Beth are thrown into the dungeon for conspiring against the throne, these stepsisters, who are not wicked, evil and certainly not ugly, are forced to tell their fellow prisoners the real story of what happened with Cinderella. Part flashback, part story theatre and all high-octane musical comedy, the story unfolds in ways the Grimm tale never did.
