Building this live trailer was no fairytale, but anything for Cinderella. 

The University of Oregon Theatre department asked us to advertise for their upcoming show, Cinderella Waltz. We decided if movies can have trailers, so can plays. We built a live trailer by hand that was placed in the center of campus. It was an interactive trailer with one side of iconic images from the play and the other side with 'teaser' riddles that led you from square to square.

Trailer Text: 

Shoe
If the shoe fits wear it, right? Hell no, not if that shoe is glass and the castle is like 5 miles away.

Castle
The castle lights up the city, but who will feel the darkness when the clock strikes midnight? Well, definitely not the prince because he is always in the spotlight…or so he thinks.

Prince
I’m the best looking man in the entire town. Women can’t wait to get a chance to come chill at my castle. I wonder if Rosey is coming to the ball tonight… or her sister.

Cinderella (Rosey Snow)
Destiny is a romantic concept, but there’s absolutely nothing romantic about spending a lifetime washing the cat by the well.

Well
What pops up from this unpredictable pit is rarely water. But the Fairy Godmother doesn’t like water much, anyway.

Fairy Godmother
Who said you can’t wear fur after fifty? This stylish Fairy Godmother would never wear any regular old pants.

Pants
Where the hell is the lost and found? Father has no clue. Who said Zed was the village idiot?

Village Idiot
People think I don’t talk because I’m dumb, but really I’m just listening to all these fools who have no grasp on reality. They think that wealth and beauty are the only things that matter. C’mon people wake up and hear the music..

Music Box
Does the music box have an aux cord? Let’s get this carriage poppin’

Carriage
Carried by mice, lizards, and iguanas…which is just… twisted. Not as twisted and deranged as when mother goes crazy with an axe.

Axe
Who needs all your toes anyway? A ticket only costs one big toe or three little ones. Jk jk.

Tickets
In the play Troll hands out the tickets, but students can just go for free! But... if you find our friend Troll, bring him with!
