December 18 - 30, 2018

Rogers and Hammerstein's classic adaptation has been reincarnated for the 21st Century, with a new book by Douglas Carter Beane that updates the fairytale with new sub-plots, whilst keeping the heart of this wonderful story of Cinderella, her glass slipper and the Prince who falls for her. This fresh and sweet revival is an opulent affair, with high spirited choreography, stunning costumes, against the soundtrack of R&H's best songs.
