Two young girls, Betsy and Maria, are walking in a park one day when Betsy looks down near a park bench and finds a leather wallet containing $900. She feels it's "Finders Keepers", while her friend Maria tries to convince her to turn it in to the authorities to try to find the owner. Frustrated by her friend's lack of moral virtue, Maria leaves in a huff, as Betsy slips and falls, hitting her head on the park bench. As she enters into a dreamlike state, well known celebrities (such as Al Gore, George W. Bush, and Mother Teresa) keep popping up to tell her what she should do with the money. A final Round Table of these characters create a decision which Betsy finally figures out for herself.

FINDING CINDERELLA is in production by Kirby Chittenden's class and will feature 9 fifth grade students in a play written by professional actress and producer Connor Snyder. The show opens on Tuesday, May 18. The one act play will also be featured in an evening performance for families and the public on Tuesday, May 25, at Lake Hills Elementary School.

Tyler and Emily work together to connect the six flats used for the upstage walls. Tyler, Ben, and Carly then help raise the walls for our class play. Ellie and Ben roll on the base color for each fence picket.
