Freya Forstall of Los Altos Hills plays the title role in Peninsula Youth Theatre’s “Cinderella.”

The Peninsula Youth Theatre’s twist on “Cinderella” is scheduled to close this weekend at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

The Mountain View-based PYT describes the production as an “irreverent and hysterical musical version” of the classic story, transforming it into a British pantomime. The fractured fairy tale features dancing mice, a sassy fairy, a Little Bo Peep who can’t keep track of her sheep and a wicked stepmother who may be looking to snag the prince herself.

Written by Kate Hawley, the play features music by Gregg Coffin.

Performances are slated 7:30 p.m. Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday. In addition, there are school shows set for 9:30 a.m. Thursday and Friday.

Tickets are $24 for general admission, $18 for seniors (over 62) and children (under 12), and $20 for groups of 10 or more. Tickets to the school shows are available only by phone.
