“In my own little corner, in my own little chair, I can be whatever I want to be.
On the wing of my fancy I can fly anywhere, and the world will open its arms to me.”
The Tony Award-winning musical from the creators of South Pacific and The Sound of Music. Douglas Carter Beane’s adaptation of this well-loved classic invites us to build a better, kinder world together. When she meets a dragon-slaying young prince who is just assuming control of his government, Ella helps spark transformation and empower the disenfranchised in their kingdom. With the help of her fairy godmother, a pumpkin and a little magic and humor, Ella, Prince Topher and their generous friends will inspire and delight the whole family.
Featuring designs inspired by French pop-up books and spellbinding on-stage illusions, this triumphant Cinderella fits like a glass slipper! Shelley Butler (The Magician’s Daughter at Geva) directs.
