For its 10th annual panto, People's Light and Theatre Company reprises its most successful venture into that festive British form: 2008's Cinderella . For audiences (with or without children) who missed the Barrymore-winning show its first time around, and those curious about all the panto fuss, the return engagement helps explain why this theatrical variant has been a holiday favorite across the pond since the 18th century. Despite its name, the panto - shortened from pantomime - has nothing to do with silent mimes, and everything to do with a raucous good time.

CBS has found its Cinderella. After a long search that CBS News had dubbed "Operation Glass Slipper," ABC's Jane Clayson has been named Bryant Gumbel's co-anchor of the new Early Show, CBS sources say. It will launch Nov. 1. CBS plans to make the announcement at a star-studded New York news conference Tuesday. A CBS News spokeswoman yesterday declined comment. Clayson, 32, an L.A.-based correspondent, reports mainly for Peter Jennings' ABC World News Tonight. Clayson has covered several major stories for ABC, including Bob Dole's 1996 Presidential campaign, the 747 crash in Guam and the Heaven's Gate cult suicides.

Little girls in frilly dresses packed the Academy of Music on Wednesday night for the Pennsylvania Ballet's opening night of Cinderella. I don't know what these little women made of this take on the fairy tale, but one big one's view is that here's another version that fails to overcome the weaknesses of Prokofiev's justly maligned and rather boring score. You'd think he'd write the best music for the title character, right? But no, there's more music for the stepsisters in this ballet, characters who have been danced in drag in more versions than this one. The choreography is by Ben Stevenson, the artistic director of the Houston Ballet.

Hedgerow Theatre in Rose Valley will offer two children's shows every Saturday beginning in July. And They Lived Happily Ever After . . . Or the True Story of Cinderella opens at 11 a.m. Saturday. The Frog Prince opens July 2 as the theater's afternoon show. The children's musical offers a new spin on the classic tale of Cinderella and her mean stepsisters and stepmother, featuring a nearsighted fairy godmother, running shoes and a plumbing wrench. The story was written by Hedgerow resident playwright Gwen Armstrong, along with Deborah DeHart and Austin Nichols.

There are role reversals aplenty in La Cenerentola, the opera Gioachino Rossini and librettist Jacopo Ferretti based more on 19th-century opera versions than on the 17th-century fairy tale we know in English as Cinderella. For a start, there's no wicked stepmother. Cinderella has a greedy stepfather. And when cindergirl, here Angelina, needs to get dolled-up for the ball, whom does she turn to but an unexpected godfather - Alidoro, aide to Prince Ramiro, who spends a lot of time pretending he's a servant.

When it comes to Philadelphia bands making it big, it started out as the Year of the Hooters, with a waxing John Eddie and a waning Robert Hazard. No one, save a hard core of 500 devotees who packed the Empire Rock Club in Northeast Philadelphia and the Galaxy nightclub in Somerdale every weekend, seemed much interested in a hard-rock quartet from the suburbs. Yet with little more than word-of-mouth and MTV airplay, Cinderella's debut album, Night Songs, not only has worked its way to the No. 13 spot on Billboard's national Top 100 album chart, but it went gold (sales of 500,000)

Among the more intriguing stories of Week 1 at the Pan Am Games was that of swimmer Anthony Nesty, who won a gold medal for Suriname in the men's 100- meter butterfly. It was the first-ever medal for Suriname in Pan Am competition, and considering that the country has only one swimming pool, Nesty's accomplishment seemed all the more stunning. As it turned out, Nesty's background wasn't nearly as deprived as his country's. He graduated from high school in Jacksonville, Fla., where there is more than one swimming pool, and will enter the University of Florida as a freshman next month.

John Chaney says there is absolutely no chance for a letdown by his Temple Owls when they play Cinderella-like Richmond this afternoon in the second round of the NCAA tournament at Cole Field House. "The only thing I remember about Richmond is that they kicked our butt the last time we played them," said Chaney. "You can be an elephant or a rat, it doesn't matter so long as it's kicking your butt. " Most experts figured that if the Owls got past their first-round game Thursday with Purdue, their second-round opponent would be Syracuse.

ON WEDNESDAY night, Nicole Reid and Siaoni Jackson, both 20, experienced a rite of passage they thought they'd given up when they dropped out of high school. Earlier in the day, they got their hair done, their makeup just right, and then slipped into striking, matching champagne-colored dresses they had fretted over for weeks before ... the Big Night. Prom night. So what if they weren't graduating from the high school they once attended. So what if they had a lot more on their plates as single mothers than typical high school graduates.

No musician who gained renown in the late '80s playing "glam" or "hair metal" loves those descriptions. The skilled musicians and singers who made heavy metal with contagious pop hooks (and big hair, be honest) find it as off-putting as "neo-soul" is to R&B players of the 2000s. "Not a fan of the term, but considering what most bands looked like at the time, I totally understand," Mark Evans says with a laugh. "There were a lot bands not taken seriously because of how they looked vs. their level of talent.

There is much to celebrate when the Philadelphia Music Alliance (PMA) holds its first evening gala in 20-plus years for the Walk of Fame induction ceremony, cohosted with the Avenue of the Arts. All will take place Monday at the brand-new Fillmore Philadelphia in Fishtown. "I was part of the original board spearheaded by Larry Magid, whose drive and vision created the PMA," says cochair Alan J. Rubens, a Time Life executive. Rubens got involved with the PMA again in 2013 to continue that vision, and cochair Mia Tinari thought up the idea of a gala to start that process.

For a time at the Pavilion Monday night, the holiday spirit took some interesting turns. "They're running the same play!" one guy yelled Monday night at Villanova's defense. "Go inside!" a coach in the stands demanded. Once probably best known for a 51-game losing streak after making the jump to Division I, NJIT showed up with a new reputation - and a lifetime undefeated record against top 25 teams - after already pulling off the shocker of the college hoops season, a win at Michigan.

THE UNIVERSITY of the Sciences' team bus didn't turn back into a pumpkin last night, as the players and coaches rode that victorious carriage back to 43rd Street after pulling off a Fairy Godmother-loving upset of Drexel at the Dragons' own gym. Garret Kerr scored 27 points, including the game-winning three-pointer with 2 seconds left, as USP (6-2) stunned the 2-5 Dragons, 54-52. USP is the first non-Division I school to knock off one of those dapper D-I programs on the road during this college basketball season.

It's a neat trick. Fulfill retrograde girlish fantasies (tall, handsome, rich prince whisks you away from your dreary chores and your lousy dresses), while also pandering to the demands of contemporary gender politics: offer empowerment, self-actualization, and any other politically correct goal on the current curriculum. And this touring production of the Broadway show Cinderella , at the Academy of Music for the Thanksgiving holiday week, adds to the PC effect with a veritable rainbow of actors in the ensemble.

'TIS THE NEW era of the emancipated fairy-tale princess. The immensely popular "Frozen" has the queenly heroine Elsa going it alone, and her princess sister Anna wisely freezing out a bad suitor (before finally finding Mr. Right). And a fresh stage revamp of "Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella" - on Broadway and opening here in a new touring version tomorrow - features a rags-to-riches heroine with lotsa backbone and ambition, as well as magic at her disposal. "She's not the typical doormat Cinderella, just suffering abuse from her wicked stepmother and stepsisters" said Douglas Carter Beane, the Reading-born script writer.

TATTLE sure hopes that Keke Palmer has a thick skin because if the commenters on Philly.com, Google, Yahoo and virtually every other website in which anonymous trolls can spew vitriol are an indication, she's going to be dealing with a lot of insults and will soon be responsible for the problems at our southern border and in the Mideast. On Sept. 9, actress and BET talk-show host Keke will step into the title role in "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella," becoming the first African-American to play the part on Broadway.
