Cinderella has completed her chores, but her ball gown is ruined and her evil Stepmother and two obnoxious Stepsisters have already left for the ball. Will this spirited and feisty teen save the day? The mice seem to think so! Told with help from the younger members of the audience, the whole family will be captivated by the lively and spirited staging of the classic fairy tale. Cinderella is considered a family show and is suitable for all audiences. Autograph session after each performance!
