Bringing a fresh take on the classic tale of a young woman transformed into a princess, this hilarious and romantic adaptation of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella combines stepsisters, glass slippers, and a beautiful ball –with some surprising twists. Modern and funny, this updated Cinderella longs to escape the toil of her life at home yet recognizes that she can change the world through kindness and compassion. Cinderella is a spirited savvy soul who works to make the world a better place. She fights for her own dreams, supports the dreams of those around her, and in doing so, opens the eyes of the Prince to the world around him.
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella has music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, a new book by Douglas Carter Beane, and original book by Oscar Hammerstein II, orchestrations by Danny Troob, music adaptations & arrangements by David Chase. Cinderella is presented by arrangement with Concord Musicals on behalf of the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization.
