ONCE UPON A TIME... There was a very kind and beautiful girl named Cinderella, who lived with a very wicked Stepmother, two very jealous and ugly Stepsisters, and a very loving but weak Father. Cinderella, forbidden to attend the Royal Ball, remains at home until her Fairy Godmother appears, turns her into a Princess, and whisks her off to the Royal Ball in a beautiful crystal coach. The Prince, upon his first glance of this sparkling Princess, falls in love with this beautiful girl. But as the clock strikes midnight, Cinderella must flee the Palace before her Fairy Godmother's spell is broken leaving her in rags. Fortunately, she loses one of her glass slippers, and the Prince promises to search the world for his true love...

Complete with Sergei Prokofiev's scintillating musical score, grand scenery and lavish costumes Tacoma City Ballet's magical classical ballet "Cinderella" promises to be a delightful theatrical experience for the whole family.
