With a mix of musicals that range from the delightful to the dramatic - from long time favorite classics to a newly released winner - there's something for everyone this season at PGTheatre!
I hope you enjoy every one.
- Jill Abusch, Artistic Director

The timeless enchantment of this magical fairy tale is filled with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Now, adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. Try this musical delight on for size!
