Full Length Musical


Charles Strouse, the composer of Bye, Bye Birdie and Applause! Has written another score—we think it's his best!—with a today sound in rocking rollicking rhythms to David Rogers' lilting, laughing lyrics. June Walker Rogers has provided a hilarious comedy-spoof book based on Sir Osbert Sitwell's Cinderella Complex. Poor Cinderella? Not this time! It's poor stepmother and sisters—sweetly, desperately trying to drag Cinderella away from her beloved brooms and brushes to the ball! Two godmothers—two! One tells Cinderella the truth that she must shape up and stop making herself and everyone else miserable. The other gives advice on how to make everyone even more miserable! One royal family—one! The king, determined to marry off his son; the queen, determined not to. The prince, a lyric tenor who says nothing. It's all upside down and all laughs. True to tradition, Cinderella wins her prince but there is an interesting switch. Simple sets and optional costumes with exciting but easy-to-play orchestrations by Broadway's Phil J. Lang. Any group can produce this show without difficulty, and any group can enjoy it. Area staging.
