Forgiven: a Fairy Tale, opening this Friday, Feb. 3 at the Zanesville Community Theatre, is a family-oriented story on the power of forgiveness. Performances are scheduled for 8 p.m. on Feb. 3, 4, 10 and 11, with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 5 and 12.

With a cast of 42, the production tells the story of Elizadora, an outcast from the rest of the fairy-tale folk, who gives in to bitterness when she is misunderstood and wronged. A simple act of kindness and understanding rights previous wrongs and prompts forgiveness, which is an important lesson for all. Some of the familiar characters include King Midas, Cinderella, and Goldilocks.

Forgiven is being directed for ZCT by Sarah Gantzer, with Michelle Robison as assistant director and Jillian B. Von Gunten as producer. Fairy tale cast members are: Amber Allen, Sue Barzda, Allison Baughman, Coen Cox, Samuel Dailey, Caleb Dreier, Olivia Frampton, Jerah Gahagen, Jonah Gahagen, Val Gahagen, Madeline Gantzer, Drew Hartley, Ella Hartman, Alonna Hendershott, Cady Hendershott, Jadyn Hendershott, Gracie Hoover, Kevin Hoover, Leah Hoover, Rosie Hoover, Parker Lanning, Chelsea Miller, Elijah Murphy, Blake Nesselroad, Alaina Roberts, Phoebe Ruby, Sam Rupe, Philip Sakal, Landon Schneider, Savannah Schneider, Cameron Scott, Kari Scott, Nathan Scott, Amelia Shaffstall, Jay Shaffstall, Isabella Smith, Brielle Snider, Rachelle Snyder, Evie Swick, Monica Van Nort, Payton Van Nort, Trey Weekley, Caleigh Williams and Becca Wilson.
