Don’t be late for the ball!
This Thursday kicks off an eight performance run of everyone’s favorite classic fairytale, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella at Artpark.
Originally created for television as a star vehicle for Julie Andrews in 1957, its broadcast was seen by 100 million viewers and has since been adapted for the stage. Cinderella boasts all the trademarks of wonderful songs and lavish dance numbers associated with the classic works of the award-winning duo, Rodgers & Hammerstein, who are widely acknowledged as the all-time ‘Kings of Broadway.’
According to Artpark,
Poor Cinderella is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Denied a chance to go to the Royal Ball, it is only through Cinderella’s innocent faith in a miracle that allows her wish to go to the ball to come true. Musical highlights include “In My Own Little Corner”, “A Lovely Night”, “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?” and “Impossible.”
This timeless rags-to-riches story will charm its way into your heart and remind you that dreams really do come true!
