Holiday Musical

Cinderella 2022

December 2 - 18, 2022

Cantey V. Sutton Theatre (Reserved Seating)

RLT’s holiday tradition returns for the 38th year! This musical comedy is a holiday sugarplum for the whole family. Just the right mixture of comedy and romance can add the sparkle of magic to your holiday season. This visually stunning musical combines elegant costumes and scenery with singing, dancing, conniving step-relatives, and resourceful fairy folk.

This version of Cinderella is the perfect family outing during the holiday season, with the Royal Ball taking place on Christmas Eve. Join the cast in singing “We Wish You a Merry a Christmas,” and come celebrate the holidays at RLT!

Based on the fairy tale by Charles Perrault
Adaptation and lyrics by Jim Eiler
Music by Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy

Directed by Laura Bess Jernigan and Lormarev Jones

Cinderella – Prince Street Players Version is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com

Coats for the Children

Opening night of Cinderella proudly benefits WRAL’s Coats for the Children, with $5 of every ticket sold going to provide warm coats for children in need. Thanks to WRAL Morning News anchor Jeff Hogan for attending opening night and helping us kick off this year’s production!

Additionally, we will have a Coats for the Children collection box set up in the lobby during the entire run of the show, so feel free to bring new toys and gently used clean coats, hats, and gloves with you to the theatre to make a donation.

Be sure to tune in to WRAL’s Coats for the Children telethon on Friday, December 9th, for a special guest appearance from Cinderella!
