Cinderella is the beloved tale of a young, contemporary woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess. The hilarious and romantic musical combines the classic story elements of the glass slippers, pumpkin, and elegant ball, along with other surprising twists. The production includes a live orchestra, transformations, and elaborate costumes.
Cinderella is more that just a pretty face with the right shoe size living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited, young woman with savvy and soul who doesn’t let her rags or gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion, and forgiveness. While she longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home, she wants to make the world a better place. She fights not only for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too.
Cinderella was written for television, debuting in 1957, staring Julie Andrews. In 2013 the show made a long overdue Broadway debut. The musical includes the cherished score, Cinderella, along with In My Own Little Corner, Impossible / It’s Possible, Ten Minutes Ago, and Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?
