CTC’s newest Company Actor Traci Allen is currently enchanting Twin Cities’ audiences with her portrayal of Cinderella in Children’s Theatre Company’s holiday production Cinderella. Her performance has garnered praise from audiences and critics alike. According to City Pages, “Allen is magnetic as Cinderella, merging weary innocence with grace. It's a performance that carries plenty of dramatic weight, which adds a real heart to all the frantic comedy.” Allen’s performance was most appreciated by girls and young women from North Minneapolis who belong to local groups dedicated to their empowerment: the Can Do Girls Club and the Wayman African Methodist Episcopal Church Praise Dancers. Both groups attended the performance on Sunday, November 17 followed by an exclusive post-show discussion with Allen.
