Behind the magic of "Cinderella"

November 18, 2019

In Act I of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, Ella proclaims that it’s “impossible” for a pumpkin to turn into a carriage and her rags to become a ballgown. From the lighting to the costumes to the massive set, Cinderella is one of the most technically heavy shows the theatre department has tackled.

Paired with Monday and Tuesday’s weather (snow is now infamous to the theatre department), the idea of bringing every aspect of the show together seemed to reflect Ella’s sentiments.

Click through the sections below to learn about the different elements that went into the production of Cinderella.
