Crosstown Arts’ Open Crit series, organized in partnership with ArtsMemphis, is a monthly critique event where visual artists are invited to bring new and/or in-progress studio work for critical feedback and group discussion particular to each artist’s practice. All sessions are free and open to the public.
The story begins where the traditional tale ends — at the wedding ceremony of Cinderella and her prince. After the first wedding dance begins, the townspeople gossip about the prince’s new bride, Cinderella. She isn’t as nice as others may believe. Come and enjoy a gallery exhibition and performance by the high school students of Trezevant, Central and Manassas. Devised, designed, and performed by Crosstown Youth Theatre
