Step into the magical world of Cinderella and see if the shoe fits. Meet mice that sing and dance while getting Cinderella to the ball in a magic pumpkin all arranged by her fairy Godmother. But the true magic is unforgettable memories you will create with your family - memories that will last a lifetime!.
This beautiful musical by Michael Sgouros & Brenda Bell is based on the beloved classic fairy tale. Poor Cinderella, she works all day, has to deal with those awful step-sisters and then sleeps in the cinders. But, don't be too sad because Cinderella is one smart cookie. She'll make it to the Prince's ball and capture his heart. Sure, she may loose one of her shoes, but what she gains is worth more than gold!
In addition to the one hour musical, the audience receives a special treat - interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how we turned it into a musical. We discuss the themes of the show and how the arts bring literature to life. Then the kids and their families make their own crowns and magic wands to take home as a souvenir. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms and themes represented in the production.
