Cinderella, a musical fairy tale directed by Shelley Cole, will be live on stage at Play On's Theatre at Ix from December 2-19, 2010.
Play On! describes the performance as a tale reborn with the Rodgers and Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella was the most widely-viewed program in the history of the medium. Remakes in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren and 1997 starring Brandy were no less successful in transporting new generations to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true. Adapted for the stage with great warmth, magical romance and more than a touch of hilarity. The hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.
