"A show that will delight children and adults, even if they think they have seen every possible twist on the Cinderella story." reviewplays.com
Almost 4 decades after its world premiere at Santa Monica Playhouse, the beloved Rudie-DeCarlo musical Cinderella is getting a stunning makeover to kick off the 2021 Safe-at-Home Online Series, while benefitting the Open-Again Campaign to re-open the Playhouse doors in this, its 61st year.
It’s Cinderella like you’ve never seen her before, with new songs, hilarious special FX, a silent movie segment that will have you falling off your couch, dazzling costumes, amazing magical prestidigitation, and a story about being true to your dreams and loving yourself as you are that's as true to today as it was then - the perfect show to share with the whole family, now that families can share space once again!
Featuring Actors’ Repertory Theatre members Tiffany Howell Haile, Cydne Moore, Joseph Perez and Graham Silbert and special guest Emily Quash from our sister company Playbox Theatre in Warwick, England, the company play myriad roles – guess who plays what. You’ll probably be wrong.
“Pick of the Month!” - Show Time Magazine. From the award-winning team of Evelyn Rudie and Chris DeCarlo, adapted for the screen by Graham Silbert, CINDERELLA has all the makings of a perfect tale for today's generation: a handsome prince (who yearns to be loved for himself, not his royal position), vain stepsisters (who ultimately realize looks really aren't everything), a controlling (but genuinely well-meaning) stepmother and a refreshingly independent feisty Cinderella.
"An Enchanting Cinderella, highlighted by fast pacing, fancy costuming and a lovely, unweepy Cinderella, particularly within the context of Rudie and DeCarlo's trademark Gilbert & Sullivan comic lyrics." - LA Times.
