The Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries is excited to share the news that the University of Portsmouth Drama and Musical Society are performing Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella at the New Theatre Royal.
Cinderella was Rodgers & Hammerstein’s only musical originally written for television, and it was enormously successful, the first broadcast (1957) being watched by over 100 million people. The stage version followed soon after and was also very popular. This is the classic fairy tale, complete with magic spells, a handsome prince and villainous stepfamily. It boasts a witty script and a very sumptuous score played by the University Orchestra.
