SDA Theatre presents “The Ash Girl” by Timberlake Wertenbaker

In this eerie re-telling of Cinderella, the play centers around Ashgirl, and all the forces that encourage her demise. Included in these forces are her evil stepfamily, and the seven deadly sins that linger in the forest. Ashgirl finds solace in her warm, safe ashes, but is soon riddled with self-doubt and Sadness.

When there is tell of a ball in the kingdom, given by Prince Amir and Princess Zehra who had been exiled from their country, Ashgirl is visited by the Fairy in the Mirror, who encourages her to go to the ball and embrace her inner beauty.

This remarkable Cinderella story is about the reigning strength of the human spirit, finding your place, and overall, living happily ever after.

The play runs January 10, 11 , 16, 17, 18 in SDA’s Clayton E. Liggett Theatre. Tickets are $8.00 for students and $15.00 for adults and will be sold online at

House opens at 6:30 PM and curtain times are 7:00 PM all evenings. We hope to see you there!
