Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella is a retelling of a classic rags-to-riches fairy tale featuring a beautiful girl who desires to attend the ball at the palace. With the aide of a Fairy Godmother, she has that opportunity. However, her evil stepmother and stepsisters will try to stop any attempt she makes from getting out of her servant's role they forced her to take.
Although it is family-friendly, don't expect a true-to-Disney version. Rodgers and Hammerstein created Cinderella initially for a 1957 TV special, which starred Julie Andrews.
Following Cinderella, Shelby County Community Theatre will present two one act plays called I'm Herber and Strawberry Jam. The plays will go on beginning August 19.
