Date of Work



Cinderella and the Prince from the 1923 May Fete production. Cinderella is played by Margaret Gillette and Prince Charming is played by George Crain. The May Fete was a modest production from 1909-1916 until Nell Martindale took over as head and expanded the small show into a spectacular dance-drama. From 1917 to 1927, May Fete saw elaborate sets and as many as 500 performers. The last May Fete was in 1927 when Martindale resigned to be married.
