Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella and 42nd Street
July 12 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00pm, repeating until August 18, 2018
Audiences will have a ball this summer at Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) when magic and romance come alive in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella and 42nd Street.
On alternate evenings, audiences can indulge in these spectacular song-and-dance filled fables – one a magical tale of Fairy Godmothers and glass slippers, the other, a Golden Age Broadway sensation jam-packed with glitz and glam.
TUTS’ 2018 season offers two dream-come-true tales – one of a rags to riches princess who finds her prince charming, the other of an aspiring theatre star who gets her lucky break on Broadway.
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella is a magical musical of dreams come true and happily ever after. The timeless enchantment of the fairy tale classic is given fresh life by the creators of The Sound of Music, South Pacific, and Oklahoma! Brimming with wit and warmth, the Tony Award-winning musical promises to transport the hearts of children and adults alike with Fairy Godmothers, glass slippers, and the triumph of true love.
42nd Street is Broadway’s big, brassy song-and-dance extravaganza. The story’s heroine is Peggy Sawyer. Fresh off the bus from small-town America, Peggy is just another face in the chorus line in Broadway’s newest, glitziest show; but when the leading lady gets injured, Peggy might finally get her shot at stardom.
Adapted from the cult classic 1933 film (which featured choreography from the legendary Busby Berkeley), the musical is a celebratory ode to the grandest movie musicals of yesteryear. 42nd Street is bursting with all-time classics, including ‘Lullaby of Broadway’, ‘Shuffle Off to Buffalo’, ‘We’re in the Money’, and the titular show-stopping, tap-dance spectacular.
