Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella Enchants CT Again February

February 24, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella Enchants CT Again February 24 – 26 for four performances, including two matinees the Palace Theater in Waterbury. Tickets for CINDERELLA can be purchased online at, by phone at 203-346-2000, or in person at the Box Office, 100 East Main Street.
With its fresh new take on the beloved tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess, this hilarious and romantic Rodgers + Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA combines the story’s classic elements – glass slippers, pumpkin, and a beautiful ball along with some surprising twists. More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman with savvy and soul who doesn’t let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. She longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home and instead work to make the world a better place. She not only fights for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too.
