In response to being fired from Rivertown's production of Cinderella 48 hours before opening night, Gary Rucker and Sean Patterson wrote a two man version of Cinderella, which was presented as a "protest" immediately following the curtain call of the public performances of Rivertown's intended production.

Notes: [RRT # a
"Gary Rucker and Sean Patterson, who were to have appeared as the Step-Sisters in RRT's "Disney's Cinderella," were fired from the show 48 hours before opening night or the rights to perform the show would have been pulled. They were replaced with Maddie Bruno and Chelsea Armstrong, who were playing the step-sisters for the morning school performances. The reason given was that Disney would not allow men to appear as women in the play. Drawing upon their extensive experience in Children's Theater, Rucker & Patterson quickly cobbled together a performance illuminating the long history of the Cinderella legend through the ages and cultures. At the conclusion of the advertised performance, Rucker & Patterson (the latter shouting "Attica! Attica!") would come down the ailse and invite the audience to remain for their performance following an intermission." - MPC
