CRANFORD, NJ - Rehearsals are underway for Rapunzarella White, the December Children's Show at CDC Theatre in Cranford. Rapunzel, Cinderella and Snow White are triplets who are stolen by an angry witch and each is catapulted into her own fractured fairy tale. Each dreams of being rescued by a handsome Prince. Will they be saved? Of course! Beau, Barry and Burly Bob may be a little more bashful and bumbling than bright, but with the help of the Fairy Tailor, and some magic, they all live happily ever after. With book and lyrics by June Rachelson-Ospa and book and music by Daniel Neiden, this very funny and tuneful tale is entertainment for the entire family. Performances will be at CDC Theatre, 78 Winans Ave., Cranford, on Friday, Dec. 4, 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 5, 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 6, at 1:30 and 4:30 p.m. Tickets and information can be found by visiting www.cdctheatre.org. Funding has been made possible in part by the NJ State Council on the Arts, Dept. of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs.
