The Lied Center for Performing Arts will host Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Cinderella," a modern take on the classic tale, from Jan. 27-29.

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella,” the 2013 Tony-winning Broadway musical from the creators of “The King and I” and “The Sound of Music,” will play the Lied Center for Performing Arts as part of the Glenn Korff Broadway Series.

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Jan. 27, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Jan. 28 and 1:30 and 7 p.m. Jan. 29.

Tickets are available here, by phone at 402-472-4747 or at the Lied Center box office, 301 N. 12th St. Students can purchase tickets at a 50 percent discount with a valid NCard.

With its fresh take on the beloved tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess, “Cinderella” combines the story’s classic elements – glass slippers, pumpkin and a beautiful ball – with some surprising twists. More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman who doesn’t let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness.

“Cinderella” features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics and original book by Oscar Hammerstein II and a new book by Douglas Carter Beane. The musical was written for television – debuting in 1957 and starring Julie Andrews. The show made its Broadway debut in 2013.

The score includes “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It’s Possible,” “Ten Minutes Ago” and “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?”

The tour is produced by Work Light Productions. The Lied Center performances are supported by the Glenn Korff Broadway Endowment.
