Cinderella (Kiera Hayden) looks to stab Belle (Madison Swank) in the back.

Van-Far’s Theater Department presented the school production “Game of Tiaras” that was directed by teacher Jenniffer Hanson. Makayla Vigil was the assistant director while music was under the direction of Alex Cucciarre and Kay Bunge.
The play began a long, long time ago in a magical kingdom (England) when an aging king decides to split his empire between is three daughters: Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen.
Tragedy ensues, which is called a “terrible, hilarious tragedy.”
Combining the gut-wrenching plot twists of “Game of Thrones” and the soul-numbing despair of a Shakespearean tragedy, this adaptation of King Lear gave the au-dience many “dying with laughter” moments while the body count mounts.
It was noted that when folks play “Game with Tiaras,” some win and some die.
