Description

Theatre Coppell (theatrecoppell.com) presents Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella, on stage in the Wheelice Wilson, Jr. Theatre at Coppell Arts Center. The show runs on weekends July 30–August 15, at 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30pm on Sundays.

The Mr. Cooper Group Lobby Gallery opens 1 hour prior to the performance and theater doors open 30 minutes before the show. Concessions will be open before the performance and during intermission.

Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella is a musical in two acts with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, and a book by Douglas Carter Beane based partly on Hammerstein's 1957 book. The story is derived from the fairy tale Cinderella, particularly the French version Cendrillon ou la petite pantoufle de verre, by Charles Perrault.

A young woman forced into a life of servitude by her cruel stepmother. She dreams of a better life, and with the help of her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella is transformed into an elegant young lady and is able to attend the ball to meet her Prince. In this version, however, she opens the Prince's eyes to the injustice in his kingdom.
