Cinderella will finally get her time to shine this Autumn, after the production was postponed in 2020!

It was a devastating blow when the 2020 run of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella was postponed, with no planned date in sight - but we finally have confirmation that the production will go ahead at the Hope Mill Theatre from 1st November to 11th December - the perfect Christmas treat.

Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella is the new Broadway adaptation of the classic musical. This contemporary take on the classic tale features Rodgers & Hammerstein's most beloved songs, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It's Possible” and “Ten Minutes Ago,” alongside an up-to-date, hilarious and romantic libretto by Tony Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane.

The smart and beautiful young Ella lives in the care of her wicked, self-absorbed stepmother Madame and her two stepsisters Charlotte and Gabrielle. In another part of the kingdom, Prince Topher is trying to find himself and learn his place in the world. When his scheming advisor Sebastian suggests throwing a ball so the Prince can meet potential brides, Ella and Topher’s different worlds come together. Expect the unexpected in this clever retelling of the beloved fairy tale.

The creative team consists of the following people:

Direction: Joseph Houston (he/him)
Co-Direction & Choreography: William Whelton (he/him)
Musical Supervisor: Leo Munby (he/him)
Musical Director: Audra Cramer (she/her)

Houston commented: "It was devastating having to make the decision to cancel our production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella in 2020, due to the outbreak of Covid. The incredible creative team we have assembled, worked so hard to create a stunning and truly exciting new version of this beloved musical, from wonderful new orchestrations to beautiful set design, and we are thrilled that we are able to finally bring this show to life at Hope Mill Theatre later this year. We can't wait to welcome audiences of all ages through our doors, to enjoy this truly magical musical, proving that nothing is Impossible!"

Are you ready to make the impossible possible? You shall go to the ball this year, and this clever retelling is magical for any age. Who else is excited? Further creative team members and the cast to be announced later in the year.
