"The greatest love story ever" is coming to the Hamptons.
is a musical loved by everyone, young and old. In fact, it was my childhood favorite," noted Jayne Freedman, who is directing Cinderella: The Tale of the Glass Slipper
, a Springs Community Theater Company (S.C.T.C.) production.
The S.C.T.C. version will feature an exciting mix of old and new. "Today, we are honored to portray Cinderella
in a new light with this original musical written by Janet Vogt and Mark Friedman," Freedman shared.
Vogt and Friedman drew inspiration from the original 1697 French story, Cendrillon ou La petite Pantoufle e Verre
. "We knew we wanted to preserve the classic elements of the fairy tale, but add a few special elements that would make our version unique," the duo shared in the Playbook.
One of the duo's updates is giving the audience a deeper look into the stepsisters' personalities - one is a foodie and the other is a hypochondriac.
"Even standing in the shadows of those other Cinderella giants
by Rodgers and Hammerstein, and Disney
- this one stands on its own quite nicely," Fort Worth Star-Telegram
lauded about Vogt and Friedman's iteration. "The structure of the script, which is built with quick, short scenes, is ideal for young audiences. This is a highly satisfying Cinderella
The timeless tale revolves around Ella, whose father unexpectedly passes away, leaving the young girl to live with her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Even though Ella is forced to tend the house all day, assigned endless chore after chore, she remains hopefully optimistic. When her evil family denies Ella a chance to attend the royal ball, her kindhearted best friend, a silly rat named Putterman (another update), and her magical Fairy Godmother step in and help ensure that Ella's dreams do come true.
