The magical fairytale, Cinderella, is reborn with Rodgers & Hammerstein’s elegant and charming music. Inspired by the 1997 teleplay starring Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother, this adaptation for the stage includes warmth, hilarity, and romance.  

Performances will run December 1-11.   The musical includes Music by Richard Rodgers; Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; and was adapted for the stage by Tom Briggs from the teleplay by Robert L. Freedman.
