MANASSAS, Va., Feb. 24, 2014 – Emmy-nominated children’s theater troupe Pushcart Players brings the magic and wonder of a beloved fairytale to life when the ensemble performs “Happily Ever After – A Cinderella Tale” at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas on Sunday, March 23, 2014 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. This performance is a part of the Hylton Family Series, featuring events for families to enjoy and experience the arts together.
This delightful musical adaptation is based on a timeless tale that has been passed down from generation to generation. “Happily Ever After – A Cinderella Tale” is the enchanting story about the triumph of inner beauty, courage and kindness over greed, arrogance and cruelty. Pushcart Players uses this heartwarming tale to teach children lessons about how goodness, generosity and compassion prevail in the end; the dark side of bullying behavior; and the importance of making good choices and taking responsibility for our actions.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary season, Pushcart Players presents fully mounted productions for children, ranging from fairy tales to historical plays. Based in Verona, N.J., this stellar ensemble has been nominated for an Emmy Award for its primetime specials on CBS, and has been invited to perform at the White House. Committed to arts education, all of the company’s cast members are experienced teachers and provide innovative workshops, acting classes and residency programs to schools and communities at home and abroad. “A polished and knowing theater company … for children.” (The New York Times)

About the Hylton Performing Arts Center
Dedicated to bringing a world-class performing arts venue to the Prince William region, the Hylton Performing Arts Center was born out of a partnership among Prince William County, George Mason University, the City of Manassas, the Commonwealth of Virginia and individuals and businesses in the private sector. Soaring more than nine stories and boasting a stunning mix of copper, glass and masonry, the 85,000-square foot center is home to two unparalleled performance venues for local arts groups and performers from around the world, as well as university-related activities. Modeled after the intimate European opera houses of the 19th century, Merchant Hall is a 1,123-seat multipurpose proscenium theater, which is encircled by 27 private boxes that rise three levels. The Gregory Family Theater is a flexible, 4,400-square foot space that can be configured for many different types of performances and events. In addition, the Didlake Grand Foyer, with its sweeping staircase, provides an ideal setting for community, corporate and social events. The Hylton Performing Arts Center, the only building of its kind in the area, has become the cultural hub of Prince William County and the surrounding communities and is a shining example of civic collaboration and commitment to the arts.
