A 21st century Cinderella story for the young, the old, and those who find their way without a dress, a castle or a prince!

A World Premiere musical from Buffalo native Marisa Guida, Buffalonian Philip Farugia and MusicalFare!  A coming of age story inspired by the life and work of comedienne, Imogene Coca.  Mom gets a promotion, Dad gets fired and their pre-pubescent daughter, Genny, is being picked on at school.  With Imogene’s help, Genny learns how to be herself, make a best friend and learn about the true meaning of beauty.

The running time of the production is approximately 2 hours, including intermission.
