The national tour of
Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella is a fresh new take on the beloved tale.
The hilarious and romantic musical tells the story of a young chambermaid transformed
into a princess. The show combines the story’s classic elements of glass slippers,
the pumpkin and a beautiful ball with some surprising twists.
This Cinderella is more than just a pretty face with the right show size. She is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. This spirited young woman with savvy and soul doesn’t let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. Cinderella longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home and instead work to make the world a better place. She not only fights for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too.
Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella was written for television where it debuted
in 1957 starring Julie Andrews. In 2013 the show made its long-overdue Broadway
debut. The musical’s cherished score includes “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It’s
Possible,” “Ten Minutes Ago” and “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful.”
Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella has music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by
Oscar Hammerstein II, a new book by Douglas Carter Beane and original book by Oscar
Hammerstein II. Originally directed by Mark Brokaw and choreographed by Josh Rhodes,
the national tour is directed by Gina Rattan and choreographed by Lee Wilkins.
Music adaptation and arrangements are by David Chase and music supervision is by
