The iconic “Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella” is coming to the North Charleston Performing Arts Center this week for two performances. Everyone has a favorite version of “Cinderella,” so in fairness we are sharing three videos of the moment Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother turns a pumpkin into a carriage with the song “Impossible.”
Even fans of Julie Andrews may not recognize her in the 1957 televised version below! Prior to becoming our favorite nanny and beloved singing nun, Ms. Andrews was the original Cinderella in this classic black and white film.
The 1965 version of “Rodgers and Hammersteins Cinderella,” reigned supreme as the most recognizable version for nearly 30 years. This filmed-for-television event was one of CBS’s most popular shows of the 60’s and 70’s.
90’s kids will remember begging their parents to let them stay up to watch the incomparable Whitney Houston take on the role of the Fairy Godmother in 1997. Featuring a multi-racial cast, this version of “Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella” received wide acclaim for being a Cinderella-story for everyone.
Don’t miss your chance to see “Cinderella” for yourself this week at NCPAC and make your own magical memories!
