At the ball, she falls for a handsome prince whose parents are anxious for him to find a suitable wife.

OCC Theater is performing the "Enchanted Edition" of Cinderella, which is inspired by the acclaimed 1997 teleplay starring Brandy and Whitney Houston. This version of the magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm, and elegance.
