When Rodgers & Hammerstein first set this well-known fairy tale as a musical, they did so for a television audience, who fell in love with this show on March 31, 1957. Their original version worked well both on television and on stage and had several notable remakes that kept the show in the public eye. However, until this new Broadway version was commissioned in 2013, Cinderella never had her Broadway debut. The new producer wanted characters who would take charge of their own lives and destinies; they weren’t interested in, and didn’t think today’s audiences would be interested in, passive characters whose princes just drop in from the sky. This new script includes modern sensibilities, but with a whole lot of traditional theatrical magic. This version also includes all the familiar songs from the original production and introduces a few new ones as well. In addition, you’ll be introduced to some interesting new angles on familiar characters and meet some new characters who were created for this script. Being a part of the performing arts in our community can be a wonderful and life changing experience.
