Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Douglas Carter Beane
Directed by Rachael Swartz

Livestreamed from the Main Stage Theatre

Fri, May 7  |  10 am & 7 pm
Sat, May 8  |  7 pm

The story is derived from the fairy tale Cinderella, particularly the French version Cendrillon ou la petite pantoufle de verre, by Charles Perrault. The story concerns a young woman forced into a life of servitude by her cruel stepmother. She dreams of a better life, and with the help of her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella is transformed into an elegant young lady and is able to attend the ball to meet her Prince. In this version, however, she opens the Prince's eyes to the injustice in his kingdom.
