Sunday, Nov. 27, 1 p.m., Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati

Children’s Law Center will wave a magic wand to present its annual holiday performance, “Cinderella: After Ever After.”  

Each year, CLC acquires all seats at the theater for one special dress rehearsal, which is dedicated to Mary Fisher, a longtime supporter of CLC and Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati.

CLC, a nonprofit legal service center protecting the rights of children and youth, sells sponsorships and seating to the event, and many people donate their tickets for use by clients of children’s agencies.

“Cinderella: After Ever After” continues the story following a fairy tale’s “happily ever after.” What happens when Prince Freddy and Cinderella move into the palace with her diva stepmother and two self-absorbed stepsisters in tow? What becomes of Cinderella’s beloved animal friends and Gaston, Freddy’s trusted companion?

CLC provides cookies and cocoa during intermission, and the show’s cast meets with children and their families for pictures and autographs after the performance.

Tickets are $20 and $30, and sponsorships are available.
