Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella
October 27 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$55
Step into a world of enchantment with Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, a timeless two-act musical featuring the iconic music of Richard Rodgers and the lyrical brilliance of Oscar Hammerstein II. This adaptation, ingeniously crafted by Douglas Carter Beane, reimagines the classic tale of a young woman trapped in servitude by her cruel stepmother. When her Fairy Godmother magically transforms her, she becomes a elegant lady destined for the royal ball, but in a refreshing twist, she also becomes a catalyst for change in the kingdom, opening the Prince’s eyes to its injustices.
Originally composed for a 1957 television broadcast starring Julie Andrews, this adaptation made history in 2013 by becoming the first Broadway production to showcase the complete Rodgers and Hammerstein score. Beane’s narrative introduces new characters and a compassionate stepsister, adding depth to the beloved story. With timeless melodies and a Cinderella who dares to dream beyond her glass slipper, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella promises to captivate hearts and spirits anew.
Cinderella will be NOVA’s 50th anniversary production and the inaugural Music Theatre production in The Round.
