Paper Mill Playhouse (Michael Gennaro, President and CEO) will present the first production of the 2005-2006 season: Rodgers & Hammerstein¹s classic musical Cinderella under the direction of Gabrial Barre with choreography by Jennifer Paulson Lee.

This fresh and exciting adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein¹s 1957 made-for-television musical, which starred Julie Andrews, brings adventure, romance and a miraculous kingdom to the stage. Adapted for the stage with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike will soar as the timeless musical fairy tale unfolds as we watch a pumpkin turn into a golden coach, mice turn into horses, a dove becomes a footman and a famously shabby maid sees her wildest dreams come true. Even if you know the ending, this quintessential classic fairy tale will still have you asking, "Will the slipper fit?"
