Rockport — The Riley School, 73 Warrenton St., will perform a musical theater pairing Thursday, May 25, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Led by the creative collaboration of music and performing arts facilitators Hillary Dalpini and Caitlin Schick, the Lower School children will open the evening with "Three Nanny Goats Gruff", a twist on the classic tale of three goats in search of greener pastures.

The Middle and Upper School will follow with singing and dancing in the lively musical "Twinderella," which posits that Cinderella had a long-lost twin brother with his own evil step-family, living in the same kingdom. When an all-kingdom baseball game and a birthday gala are announced, the separated siblings enlist the services of a fairy Godmother, a mafioso Godfather, and two enchanted gerbils to help them wangle their way into the exclusive royal festivities.

The event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. For more information, call the office at 595-6405 or email: info@rileyschool.org.
