Additional Info

A delightful new spin on the classic tale set in Venice, this musical has lots of Italian spice and fire. To find love and happiness, a self reliant, strong and beautiful Cinderella must overcome a powerful amuletto d'amore to free her father from her step mother's mysterious spell. The Godmama wields a magic spoon and the prince's Godpapa employs his magic sword. The music is co-written by the legendary American composer of "What a Wonderful World" and "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." A great score, fascinating new characters and a joyful spirit of optimism, love and good humor make this an ideal musical for the whole family.
