Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella is a musical in two acts with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II and a book by Douglas Carter Beane based partly on Hammerstein’s 1957 book. The story is based upon the fairy tale Cinderella, particularly the French version Cendrillon, ou la Petite Pantoufle de Verre, by Charles Perrault. The story concerns a young woman forced into a life of servitude by her cruel stepmother, who dreams of a better life. With the help of her Fairy Godmother, Cinderella is transformed into an elegant young lady and is able to attend the ball to meet her Prince, but, in this version, she must open the Prince’s eyes to the injustice in his kingdom. from Wikipedia
|Rainbow Fish the Musical
Book and Lyrics by Greg Gunning
With her lovely coloring and shimmering scales, the Rainbow Fish is used to being the most beautiful creature in the ocean, so when the other fish ask her for some silver scales, she refuses. How can she sacrifice the one thing that makes her so unique? Will some good advice from the wise old Octopus persuade the Rainbow Fish to share her gifts with those around her? Playwright and lyricist Greg Gunning and composer Richard DeRosa have turned Marcus Pfister’s bestselling book The Rainbow Fish into a delightful and touching musical about the value of sharing true friendship with others.
