The musical offers a brand new take on the tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid to a princess and adds some surprising twists. But, don’t worry there will still be a glass slipper, pumpkin carriage and beautiful ball for Cinderella to attend. Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting who doesn’t let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. Not only does she fight for her own dreams, she forces the prince to realizes his dreams too.
