The cast of Millennium Theatre's Cinderella delves into the classic fairytale with gusto, drawing audiences into the iconic story of magic and romance with zippy songs and live music. The tale of the titular heroine opens with a portrayal of her servitude under her wicked stepmother and sisters. When the women head to the prince’s bride-searching ball, they leave Cinderella scrubbing the floor, but her fairy godmother soon rescues her from squalor by transforming her rags into a flowing gown and her shoes into structurally sound glass slippers. When midnight comes, the dream fades away and Cinderella flees in disgrace, leaving behind one of her slippers for Prince Charming to find and momentarily confuse for an avant-garde drinking glass. The ensuing search for the foot the slipper fits whips the village into an uproar and leaves audiences giddy. After the happy ending, a meet and greet puts showgoers face to face with the cast, encouraging starstruck handshakes and keepsake photographs.

The 1,400 plush seats have been privy to performances from ballets to rock concerts, the tunes of Ray Charles to the jokes of Jackie Mason, bringing culture to audiences without putting them through an etiquette course.
