‘Cinderella Waltz’ Public Performances

Rosey Snow is a perfectly normal 1980’s teen who’s stuck in a life that is by turns funny and a bit demented. She has an attention-hungry stepmother, two stepsisters – one who’s perpetually depressed and one who’s not too bright, and a father who just can’t seem to find his pants. Throw in a bewildered prince, a nervous troll, an eccentric fairy godmother, and a possibly homicidal village idiot, and you’ve got an improbable fairy tale that ends up turning the whole Cinderella archetype on its head. Grotesque farce and romantic fantasy blend in this hilarious story that’s fun for the whole family.

Cinderella Waltz is the 2023 UIL One Act Play contest piece for the Tiger Theatre Troupe, and per competition rules runs in just under 40 minutes. Performances will be held on Saturday, March 25th at 7 pm and Sunday, March 26th at 3 pm at the Smithville Elementary Cafetorium (800 Bishop St.). Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at:

UIL OAP Clinic 2023

Thank You to Our Patrons!

Thank you to our amazing Tiger Theatre Patrons for their support of our fall show, ‘Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll & Hyde Play’! With their help, we were able to create an incredible evening of entertainment that we’re excited to share with audiences this weekend.

Coming Soon: ‘Chemical Imbalance’


We’re excited to open our ’22-’23 season next week with performances of ‘Chemical Imbalance’’, a darkly comic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’. In Victorian England, repressed impulses burst their corsets as Dr. Jekyll’s experiments in the nature of evil threaten to reveal the bloody hands beneath the gloves of the British Empire. A fast-paced romp about men and women tightrope walking the line between aristocracy and depravity, and between the twin specters of good and evil.

Performances will be held on Friday & Saturday, November 19 & 20 at 7:00 PM in the Smithville Elementary Cafetorium. Tickets are $5 and should be purchased in advance at:
