Dance your way through the holidays with NWCT’s original tap extravaganza. The Oregonian callsCinderella”…a gem of sophisticated accessibility, hipness and wit” and “…impossible not to love.” Young Cinderella knows she’s destined for the stage, but with jealous relatives standing between her and the spotlight, she will need courage, passion, and a little magic. This holiday musical is perfect for the whole family and will keep your toes tapping until the stroke of midnight.
