BAXTER SPRINGS - Locals can be excused if they briefly thought this little cowtown had been magically transported to Broadway this past weekend. Baxter Springs Middle School put on a marvelous rendition of the quirky, hit musical 'Twinderella'.
Did you know that Cinderella has a long lost twin brother named Bob living in the same kingdom with his own wicked step-family?
Written by Charlie Lovett, with music and lyrics by Bill Francoeur, 'Twinderella' follows the separated siblings as they enlist the services of the Fairy Godmother, the Godfather, and two enchanted gerbils to help wile their way into the exclusive royal festivities of Wychwood-under-Ooze. Bob has his sights set on Prince Percy’s all-kingdom baseball game, while Cinderella eyes the birthday gala for Princess Petunia. When the two strangers disappear at midnight after Cinderella hits a game winning homerun, the search is on to find the feet that fit the glass slipper and the muddy cleat.
