Cinderella Lights Up the Claude L. Shaver Theatre with Magic, Beauty, and More

The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm, and elegance.

Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother.

This take on the ultimate makeover story features all the classic elements you remember—the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more—plus, some surprising new twists! With great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike will soar when the slipper fits. This Enchanted Edition is based on the 1997 teleplay.

Cinderella will play at the Claude L. Shaver Theatre Thursday, February 20th to Sunday, February 23rd. The Shaver Theatre is housed in the Music & Dramatic Arts Building, which is located across from the School of Music Building on Dalrymple Drive. This facility plays host to many of the LSU Theatre performances and seats 350 people. LSU Opera, the LSU School of Music Jazz Ensemble, and community groups, such as New Venture Theatre and Christian Youth Theatre, also perform here.

Tickets for Cinderella start at $16 in advance and $22 at the door. To purchase tickets, visit www.cytbatonrouge.org. For more information, contact the LSU Theatre Main Office at 225-578-4174.
