Stockberger (Run for Your Wife, Camelot) will join King (Showboat, Wizard of Oz) in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical about finding the perfect match for Prince Charming. Cinderella opens May 12 and continues through July 1.
INDIANAPOLIS – It’s the delightful story that has entertained families for generations and proved any girl can be a princess. This spring, Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre presents Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella as the Family Show of its 38th Season. Offering special discounts for kids ages 3-15, this magical musical opens May 12 with performances running through July 1.
Anything is possible in the wonderfully imaginative world of fairy tales. Pumpkins become carriages, the most beautiful ball gown appears with the wave of a wand, and it takes just one dance to fall in love. Cinderella discovers all this and more in the classic tale perfectly paired with the musical styling of the incomparable duo of Rodgers & Hammerstein.
Lindsay Sutton makes her debut at Beef & Boards in the title role. Aaron Young returns for his second production of Cinderella, but this time as her Prince Charming. Cinderella’s remarkably unladylike pair of stepsisters are played by Beef & Boards favorites Doug King and Jeff Stockberger. The musical is directed by Eddie Curry and choreographed by Ron Morgan.
