Theatre Department to Present Play Inspired by 1997 "Cinderella"

October 17, 2023 (Jackson, Miss.) - The Belhaven Theatre Department will present “Cinderella,” inspired by the acclaimed 1997 teleplay by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. “Cinderella” will debut at the Blackbox Theatre on November 9-11 and 16-18 at 7:30 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee on November 11. 

“This classic tale has been told and retold for thousands of years, and we are happy to bring it to Belhaven University,” said director of “Cinderella” and Assistant Professor of Theatre Jeff Allen Young. “One thing that distinguishes our production from what you might have seen on television is our use of puppetry throughout the performance. ‘Cinderella’ is one of our world's most treasured stories, and we hope audiences will be enchanted with our telling of it.”
