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.
As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. This Enchanted Edition is based on the 1997 teleplay.
About Butterfly Guild
Butterfly Guild, a woman's auxiliary of Nationwide Children's Hospital, dates back to 1908. The organization is dedicated to raising funds, more than $300,000 annually, for central Ohio's only pediatric hospice and palliative care programs. The money Butterfly Guild raises supports crucial services for children facing terminal and life-limiting illnesses. The Hospice Program at Nationwide Children's serves to provide children with life-limiting illnesses the opportunities to play, laugh, learn and remain home where they may be surrounded by family and friends. Offered to children and families either inpatient or living at home, the goal of the hospital's Palliative Care Program is to help patients achieve the best possible quality of life. Since the organization's inception, Butterfly Guild has raised more than $4 million for Nationwide Children's Hospital.
