From the Pushcart Players website:
This all-new production based on a legend first told more than a thousand years ago – in China. It is known to most of us as “Cinderella,” but we’ve named it “Happily Ever After…A Cinderella Tale.” It seems that we are never too old, nor do we ever grow tired of hearing this beloved story. Perhaps it is because it’s about overcoming adversity, -- ...about dreaming dreams and about goodness, generosity and compassion. And, perhaps because it’s also about things that can help us learn and grow, such as the unbecoming nature of bully behavior; the importance of making good choices and being responsible for the choices we make.
Whatever the reasons, audiences are loving the music, the magic and many fun, funny, beautiful and zany characters in our story. It’s a wondrous journey from long, long ago – to happily ever after. We hope you will join us by booking this delightful piece into your school or local theatre. We guarantee – you’ll be humming the hums and thinking the thinks all the way home!
HAPPILY EVER AFTER, A Cinderella Tale - adapted by Ruth Fost, with music by Larry Hochman and Laurie Hochman, was originally commissioned by the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts, Wickenburg, Arizona (Executive Director, Cathy Weiss) for performance in their Camp Imagination Summer Arts Program under the direction of Pushcart Players’ Harry Patrick Christian.
