In Cinderella Kid, the timeless fairy tale meets the magic of Disney in this adaptation of the treasured animated film.
Poor Cinderella is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters, and denied a chance to go to the Royal Ball. With a little help from her mice friends, and a lot of help from her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella goes to the ball, meets the Prince, and falls in love! With a beautiful score, including A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes and the classic Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo, this musical will charm its way into your heart, and remind you that dreams really can come true.
Growing for the past four years, this is Childrens Theater Projects 13th workshop.
