A Cinderella Tale @ Queensborough PAC (Bayside, NY) @ Queensborough Performing Arts Center
Apr 13 @ 10:00 am – 12:45 pm

A musical adaptation of the Classic Tale that takes us on a magical journey.  “Happily Ever After… A Cinderella Tale” is based on a legend first told more than a thousand years ago – in China.

It seems that we are never too old for this beloved story, nor do we ever grow tired of hearing it. Perhaps it is because it’s about overcoming adversity, about dreaming dreams and about goodness, generosity and compassion.

Perhaps it’s also about things that can help us learn and grow, such as the dark side of bully behavior, and the importance of making good choices and being responsible for the choices we make.

This musical adaptation of the classic tale takes us on a magical journey that showcases inner beauty, courage and kindness triumphing over greed, arrogance and bully behavior.  It is an enduring story that demonstrates the power of arts in education and fulfills many core curriculum standards through musical theater.

Both educational and fun for all ages!
