Meet the Cast of Cinderella
|Brittany Menzies (Cinderella) is happy to be in her fourth season with StoryBook playing Cinderella! She just returned from a tour with Missoula Children’s Theatre performing Beauty Lou and the Country Beast, which combined her loves of theatre and traveling, but she is at home in the PNW with her SBT family. Some of her favorite SBT shows so far have been Hansel and Gretel, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, The Little Mermaid, and Chicken Little. Thanks to all of you who bring
your little loved ones to the arts, and my family.
Deonn Hunt (Stepmother) is thrilled to be back on stage with StoryBook Theater. She has wanted to play the stepmother in Cinderella since 1990, when Katie Walton beat her out for the role in 10th grade. Deonn has been writing, performing, teaching and and directing in the Seattle area for the last 20 years. Most recent StoryBook credits include Hansel and Gretel, Snow White, and Goldilocks & the 3 Bears. In real life, Deonn is also a mother and stepmother. She would like to thank Luke and Clara for being only slightly less ridiculous than her on stage children and her husband Mark for being Mark.
