“Impossible things are happening every day!” Join Crane River Theater under the open sky at Yanney Park as this magical fairy tale is reborn with originality, charm and elegance. Cinderella spends her days in a life of servitude for her cruel stepmother, and dreams of a better life. With the help of her Fairy Godmother, her wishes come true, and she’s transformed into a beautiful princess. She meets a handsome prince, but must leave before the spell wears off and her dress turns back to rags. Leaving behind just one glass slipper, will the Prince be able to find Cinderella and live happily ever after? Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella continues to captivate audiences year after year. After all, even if we know the story by heart, we still hold our breath until we are sure that the slipper fits.

Join us on opening night, June 18, for the annual Storybook Walk, in partnership with the Kearney Area Children’s Museum!
