Theater cancels production of Cinderella because the cast is too white!

CHANHASSEN, Minnesota (PNN) - March 25, 2021 - A local Minnesota theater has cancelled a production of Roger & Hammerstein’s Cinderella because its cast was “too white”.

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres was scheduled to stage the show later this year before its artistic director stepped in to slam its lack of diversity.

“It was 98% white,” said the artistic director, Michael Brindisi after looking at who had been cast.

However, Chanhassen - located southwest of Minneapolis - has a population that is overwhelming white, and the racial demographics of the cast were not strikingly different from the city as a whole.

According to the most recent census, 92.5% of people in Chanhassen are white. Less than 3% of residents are Hispanic, while 1.1% are black.

No photos of the Cinderella cast were officially released before the show was scrapped.

In a statement released on Monday, the theater stated, “After careful consideration and with our ongoing commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, we have made the decision to cancel our upcoming production.”

“In addition to changing future programming, we are establishing new pre-production protocols. We will be inviting (and paying) BIPOC artists to analyze the production with our creative teams through a new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion lens. This conversation will happen before the design and casting process has begun.”

Chanhassen Dinner Theaters have hired a diversity consultant and pledged a commitment to “identity-conscious casting and becoming a more intentionally anti-racist theater.”

Meanwhile, the organization is currently putting together a production of The Music Man and has a “strong priority placed on casting BIPOC artists.”

Meanwhile, Brindisi said that the theater considered recasting Cinderella.

However, they decided to scrap the show and start from scratch with a separate production.

While some cast members were upset by the news, Brindisi says that most “respected the very hard decision we had to make.”

Chanhassen Dinner Theaters will replace Cinderella with a more diverse adaptation of Footloose, now scheduled for 2022.

Ed. Note: Freedom loving people should boycott this Marxist, racist organization that openly discriminates not only against white people, but also against the brilliant creative geniuses who have brought us quality theater for centuries.
