CenterPoint Legacy Theatre Presents Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella

by Discover Davis

“Join us for an evening of enchantment and magic as the CenterPoint Legacy Theatre presents the beloved classic, Cinderella! The smart and beautiful young Ella has been left to a life of servitude to her self-centered stepmother Madame and her two stepsisters, Charlotte and Gabrielle.  Ella’s only friends are the animals in the woods, “crazy Marie” and the forward-thinking student Jean-Michel.  At the same time, Prince Topher is trying to find himself and his place in the kingdom.  At a ball designed to find him a bride, Prince Topher and Ella’s worlds converge in an enchanting and magical way that makes you believe that dreams really do come true.”

In all the delightful Cinderella stories out there, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s version is a fun rendition with lovely songs, a deep message about kindness, forgiveness (instead of revenge), and pursuing your dreams – even if you can’t directly relate to the Prince Charming search. We can all find a common ground in pursuing what we want and not giving up despite all the odds and those rude people who might be in our way. The beautiful set – from golden pumpkins to the gothic trees was original and creative; the intricate costumes – instantly transformed by magic are just a few of the immensely enchanting moments throughout the play. We won’t spoil it for you, but the transformation, both in costume and in carriage, was breathtaking. This play is wonderful for the whole family and like most of CenterPoint’s productions, not one to be missed.
