FSCJ Artist Series Presents Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella on June 13-18!
Tony-Award winner Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella comes to the Times-Union Center on June 13-18, 2017 for eight performances only!
With its fresh new take on the beloved tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess, this hilarious and romantic Rodgers + Hammerstein's CINDERELLA combines the story's classic elements – glass slippers, pumpkin, and a beautiful ball along with some surprising twists. More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman with savvy and soul who doesn't let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. She 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.
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, the tour is directed by Gina Rattan and choreographed by Josh Rhodes. Music adaptation and arrangements are by David Chase and music supervision is by Valerie Gebert. Orchestrations are by Bill Elliott and are adapted from the original Broadway orchestrations by Danny Troob.
