November 2nd, 2017 by Amanda with no comments

For the holidays, The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati presents CINDERELLA December 9-18, 2017 at the Taft Theatre.  This isn’t your mother’s (or your grandmother’s) Cinderella.

Boys as well as girls will love all of the audience participation, side-splitting humor, and outlandish characters in this classic fairytale set to popular music. Adapted by John B. Davidson, featuring original Music by Victor Zupanc. Based on the Fairytale by Charles Perrault.  Produced by special arrangement with Plays for Young Audiences. CINDERELLA will be performed as a holiday “panto,” which means this classic, rags-to-riches story has been turned on its head and cleverly staged to entertain everyone from children to adults.


Interactive audience participation, Slapstick comedy, Cross-dressing characters, Fantastic dance numbers, Modern music from Adele, to Walk the Moon, to Whitney Houston “You won’t find another Cinderella quite like this in Cincinnati!” says Roderick Justice, Producing Artistic Director for The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati and director/choreographer of TCT’s CINDERELLA production.


“We look forward to bringing something fresh and new to the Taft Theatre stage that will delight children and adults during the holiday season.”In this hilarious holiday panto, you’ll jeer at the deliciously dysfunctional stepmother and sisters as much as you’ll cheer for Cinderella in her quest to attend the magnificent Christmas ball. Join TCT this winter to celebrate a Cinderella Christmas. CINDERELLA presented by The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati, December 9-18, 2017.
