Cinderella gets a makeover with the Ensemble Theatre's production of Sparkle: The Musical. This rags-to-riches tale, based on the 1976 Joel Schumacher film, follows two sisters, Sister and Sparkle, as they reach for singing stardom during the racially turbulent and musically ripe '50s. The sisters manifest the paradoxes of that rocky era in their diverging personalities: Sister becomes a casualty to drugs and street life, while Sparkle stays on the straight and narrow -- finding true love and fame along the way. It's Sparkle's turn to shine at 8 p.m.
