What is the Cinderella musical about?
Welcome to Belleville! Belleville is a fairy tale come to life but not for Cinderella who refuses to conform to the town’s ideals. She’s desperate to escape, tired of being the outsider. Her only friend is Prince Sebastian who has suddenly become the heir to the throne following the mysterious disappearance of his elder brother Prince Charming. This new role for Prince Sebastian puts a strain on his relationship with Cinderella in more ways than they could have expected… Belleville is under crisis but that’s nothing a grand (and distracting) Royal Wedding won’t fix! Will Cinderella lose all hope of her newfound blossoming romance? Or will she find answers where she always refused to look and become the very thing everyone always told her to become?
