  Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella is the Tony Award-winning musical from the creators of South Pacific and The Sound of Music that's delighting audiences with its surprisingly contemporary take on the classic tale. This lush production features an incredible orchestra, jaw-dropping transformations and all the moments you love—the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more. The show is at Proctors in Schenectady, NY this week.

The show boasts Rodgers and Hammerstein's most beloved songs, including "In My Own Little Corner," "Impossible/It's Possible" and "Ten Minutes Ago."

Kaitlyn Davidson plays Ella in the musical on the road with Cinderella where she was also part of the Broadway cast. She also starred in Broadway’s Nice Work If You Can Get It and the national tour of White Christmas.

It’s been four years since Marissa Meyer turned the fairytale world upside down with her dystopian sci-fi novel Cinder – the first of The Lunar Chronicles -  where a young girl who is part android, must outwit her evil step mother, help find the cure to a pandemic, and make sure her 'one & only' doesn’t marry the evil queen.

Marissa Meyer - Scarlet

When Marissa Meyer created the fairytale Lunar Chronicles with her first book Cinder – an android version of Cinderella destined to overthrow the evil queen in a sci-fi society, she blew readers away. Now she’s finished the second book, Scarlet, and we travel from New Beijing to France where our Red Riding Hood is on a desperate search for her Grandmother, the Big Bad Wolf, is big, bad and hot, and everyone is vulnerable to the Lunars.

Walt Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was first shown to a theatrical audience in December 1937 and brought overwhelming, joyous applause from a house full of hardened film-industry professionals.

From today’s perspective, its stature is even greater—named as one of the best movies of all time by the American Film Institute, and still beloved by children and adults around the world.

For the very first time, Mo Willems, who is a phenomenon in the world of children’s books, is retelling a fairytale as only he can. With a hilariously arch narrator, a sassy Goldilocks, clever visual jokes, and of course, dinosaurs, this telling feels completely fresh—but with a nod to the classics.
