CINDERELLA to be Presented at the High Point Theatre

The magic of Rodgers + Hammerstein's CINDERELLA, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical is coming to the High Point Theatre stage May 6-8. This lush production features an incredible 11-piece orchestra, fantastical transformations and all the moments you love-the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more. It combines the story's classic elements, plus some surprising new twists!

Rodgers + Hammerstein' CINDERELLA is the beloved tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess, this hilarious and romantic musical will delight audience members of all ages.

Ella 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 helps the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too.

Rodgers + Hammerstein's 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.

One of Rodgers + Hammerstein's most popular titles, CINDERELLA was written for television - debuting in 1957 starring Julie Andrews. In 2013, the show made its long-overdue Broadway debut. Along with CINDERELLA, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's legendary musicals include Oklahoma!, Carousel, The King and I, South Pacific and The Sound of Music.

Mr. Beane's book for Rodgers + Hammerstein's CINDERELLA blends masterfully with the musical's cherished score with songs including "In My Own Little Corner," "Impossible/It's Possible," "Ten Minutes Ago" and "There's Music In You".
