Written for television, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella attracted more than 100 million viewers when it screened in 1957, with Julie Andrews in the title role. It was adapted for Broadway in 2013 with a reworked book by Douglas Carter Beane, who brought a more modern take to the classic tale – and it’s that version that is playing here. Progressive politics aside, you can still expect a fairy godmother, a pumpkin turning into a horse-drawn carriage, a glass slipper and gorgeous costumes. Shubshri Kandiah plays Cinderella with Ainsley Melham as Prince Topher. The cast also includes Todd McKenney, Silvie Paladino and Tina Bursill. The musical tours to Brisbane in August and Sydney in October.

Starring Shubshri Kandiah as Ella (Cinderella), Ainsley Melham as the charming Prince Topher; Silvie Paladino as the Fairy Godmother, Marie; Tina Bursill as Madame, Ella’s stepmother; and Todd McKenney as Sebastian, Prince Topher’s Lord Chancellor.
