Centerstage Theatre presents its seventh annual excursion into the wild world of traditional English Christmas pantomime.

Ridiculous, riotous, ribald and rambunctious, “Cinderella” is full of great songs, outrageously bad jokes, horrible ugly sisters, and ancient routines that have entertained audiences for more than 300 years. Designed for the whole family, the show runs Nov. 30 through Dec. 23 at the Knutzen Family Theatre, 3200 SW Dash Point Road.

The show runs in repertory with “Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold.” It’s “CSI: Bethlehem” in this holiday mystery extravaganza from the author of “Late Nite Catechism.” Sister takes on the mystery that has intrigued historians throughout the ages: whatever happened to the Magi’s gold? You don’t have to be Catholic to enjoy this hilarious holiday classic. Show runs Dec. 5-22 at the Knutzen Family Theatre.

For tickets and more information on both shows, visit or call (253) 661-1444.
