TheatreUNI Presents: Cinderella

TheatreUNI Presents: Cinderella

Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 7:30 pm to Saturday, April 16, 2022 - 2:00 pm


By: Rogers, Hamerstein, Carter Beane

Music by Richard Rodgers / Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II / New Book by Douglas Carter Beane / Original Book by Oscar Hammerstein II

This is not your mother's Cinderella. The story needs no introduction, as it is based on the popular folk tale told for centuries with music and lyrics by Rodgers and Hammerstein. This fresh new version features many of the well-known songs, "Ten Minutes Ago", "The Stepsisters Lament", "Impossible", and "In My Own Little Corner", but has a reworked book by Douglas Carter Beane. This up to date new version pulls at the seams of the classic fairy tale, evoking humor for children and adults alike. With thrilling visual effects, this retelling of the classic tale is exciting, touching and funny! We will include a focus on making this production available for all families, including those that include youth and young adults with exceptionalities. Two public performances will include numerous production adjustments in order to better support individuals with autism and other developmental delays.
