As a young girl, Cinderella was my childhood fairy tale. I absolutely adored Cinderella’s kindness, strength, and positivity. And while I’ve seen a number of productions by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Cinderella is a show that remains on my theatre bucket list. This holiday season, families will enjoy a classic with a modern twist as Musical Theatre West presents Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella
Premiering on December 2nd, 2022, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella will enchant and delight families this holiday season. Based on the classic fairytale, the story of Cinderella will prove that impossible things happen every day. The original TV version of Cinderella premiered in 1957 and starred Julie Andrews. In 2013, the broadway production premiered was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and went on to win Best Costume Design.
The story originates from the fairytale and depicts a young woman who is forced into a life of servitude by her cruel stepmother. Dreaming of a better life, she is transformed into an elegant young woman with the help of her Fairy Godmother. Cinderella attends the famed ball and meets her prince, whose eyes are opened to the injustice of the kingdom because of her. This new show also introduces new characters, including a sympathetic stepsister, and features a score with songs from Rodgers and Hammerstein.
