WHAT: “Ella is cursed with the “gift” of obedience. After her mother dies and father remarries, Ella begins a journey to break the curse – battling ogres, meeting giants, and trying to avoid her evil stepsisters. After becoming tangled in a possible romance with Prince Charmont, her curse makes things more complicated – does she accept his proposal and endanger the kingdom, or break her own heart and let him go?
Adapted from Gail Carson Levine’s novel, Ella Enchanted is an empowering retelling of the classic Cinderella story, where a young woman gains freedom through personal strength and love.”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Tell us about your show.
The idea to do a stage adaptation of Gail Carson Levine’s beloved young adult novel Ella Enchanted came to myself and my friend Stephanie Neuerburg a few years ago when we were in University together. Last September Stephanie began working on the adaptation and we formed our theatre company Bushel/Barrel/Tun. Stephanie and I work as Co-Artistic Directors of the company, though she adapted the script and plays the title character, and I am the director of the show and lead producer. Steph and I have produced the show together.
Our premier is at the Colour House Theatre in London July 14-16. After we finish Edinburgh we will do one performance at the Roof Gardens in Canary Wharf as part of the Space’s summer family season.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Almost our entire cast and crew are East 15 Acting School graduates. Many other alumni are bringing really amazing shows up this year with us. We highly recommend The Starship Osiris, Scribbles, Leaf.
