We all know this delightful story because Cinderella’s story has been featured in children’s books, as well as on the stage and the big screen for generations, entertaining the young and not-so-young.
The loving, kind and imaginative Ella is bullied by her wicked stepmother and two decidedly difficult, cruel and unattractive stepsisters, all who relegate her to servitude after the death of her father.
But the all new Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, playing this summer at Tuacahn Center for the Performing Arts in Ivins, Utah, is a Tony Award-winning musical with a surprisingly contemporary take on the classic tale. According to Tuacahn’s description of their show – one of three playing this summer in the “Canyon of the Gods” – this lush production “features an incredible orchestra, jaw-dropping transformations” and all the magic you remember from your childhood – and that of your children and grandchildren – including the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more – all with some surprising new twists.
Cinderella at Tuacahn will transport every member of the family to the joyous and romantic fairy tale world of the little cinder girl and her Prince Charming as you rediscover some of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classical and most beloved music, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible / It’s Possible” and “Ten Minutes Ago.”
Tickets are now on sale online at www.tuacahn.org for performances on alternating nights from mid-May through mid-October.
