Join GCT for ‘Cinderella – The Musical!’ 

Garland Civic Theatre is proud to present “Cinderella – The Musical” with book by Joseph McDonough, music by Fitz Patton and lyrics by David Kisor. “Cinderella” is a new, fast-paced musical take on the traditional tale that is fun for the whole family!  Prince Freddy has returned to his kingdom where his father wants him to choose a bride at the royal ball. Cinderella would rather stay home and read with her animal friends, but the Well-Wisher appears and urges Cinderella to go to the ball. Cinderella and the Prince dance, but she loses her red sneaker! Prince Freddy then tours the countryside to find the sneaker’s rightful owner. Will Cinderella and Freddy find each other by learning to trust their hearts?
