Poor Cinderella? Not this time! It’s poor father, stepmother and stepsisters, who desperately try to drag Cinderella away from her beloved brooms and brushes to the ball! Two godmothers, Dame Prudence & Dame Wiley! Prudence tells Cinderella the truth that she must shape up and stop making herself and everyone else miserable. Wiley gives advice on how to make everyone even more miserable! One royal family, the king, determined to marry off his son; the queen, determined not to. The prince, who says nothing. It’s all upside down and all laughs. True to tradition, Cinderella wins her prince but there is an interesting switch. This family-friendly musical is sure to please all ages!
