By Douglas Carter Beane, Oscar Hammerstein II, Richard Rodgers, & Lewis Flinn

Directed by Lee Blair


Since her father’s death, Ella lives a life of servitude to her stepmother and stepsisters as they call her “Cinder-Ella” when she cleans ashes from the fireplace. From her own little corner of the world, she dreams beyond with hope for her, her village and its people. As if manifesting from her own thoughts, a journey of transformation ensues with a doubtful prince soon to be king, her rebellious friend, and the village’s crazy vagrant lady with a magical touch all showing Ella that happiness isn’t impossible to find.

A centuries-old folk tale told the world over, this classic musical take by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II steps into our modern world with a new book from playwright Douglas Carter Beane.
