CINDERELLA and THE NUTCRACKER

GBT begins its 2015-2016 season with “Cinderella,” everyone’s favorite fairy tale! This version is in 2 acts and faithfully follows the story of the poor little Cinderella, her evil stepmother and her mean stepsisters. A Fairy Godmother intervenes to ensure Cinderella meets her Prince at the Ball, and everyone lives happily ever after. Choreographed by GBT Artistic Director Wade Walthall, this “Cinderella” is performed to the music of Respighi. Sumptuous costumes and sets ensure a magical experience for the whole family.

 

October 3 at 2:30 and 7:30 and October 4 at 2:30.

 

All performances are at the Gwinnett Performing Arts Center at Gwinnett Center in Duluth.
