From the silly actions of Olive to the song of the ogres, there is humor for everyone in this family friendly musical. Ella’s stepsisters, Hattie and Olive (played by Madison Penzkover and Mari Duckler in the Brilliant Cast), were especially humorous throughout the musical.
The choreography (by Jessica Beth Redish) of the dancing is spot on. It really helps the songs come to life and also helps bring the characters to life.
Beyond the dancing, singing, set, and costumes, there are also a lot of people behind the scenes that did a lot of work to make this show as remarkable as it is. The work put into this show by people like Melissa Wanke and Michael Warren was not put to waste.
ELLA ENCHANTED continues through May 1, 2016.
