Overview / Synopsis
"Impossible things are happening every day!" sings the Godmother in Rodgers & Hammerstein's musical fairy tale CINDERELLA, and impossible things will happen when young performers bring this timeless tale to life.
First seen as a television spectacular in 1957, and remade for television in 1965 and 1997, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA spins its own version of the traditional story, woven through with such beloved songs as "In My Own Little Corner," "Ten Minutes Ago" and "Impossible."
With the script and score lovingly adapted for elementary and middle school performers, this classic seems as fresh as today. After all, even if we know the story by heart, we still hold our breath until we are sure that the slipper fits.
Getting to Know ... Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA is the perfect show to introduce young people up through the 9th grade the magic of live theater.
