New Cinderella Movie!

This year the FMHS Theatre Department is doing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. Coincidentally, there is a new Cinderella movie that came out on September 3rd. It starred Camilla Cabello as Cinderella and Nicolas Galitzine as the Prince. This movie is supposed to be a modern and bold take on the original Brothers Grimm fairytale. Indina Menzel, Minnie Driver, James Corden, Billy Porter, and Pierce Brosnan also starred in the movie. Cinderella has been retold many times in lots of different formats. The story of Cinderella starts with the enslaved Cinderella at the beck and call of her evil stepmother and two jealous stepsisters. She desperately wants to go to the royal ball, but her stepmother viciously refuses. Suddenly her fairy godmother appears transforming her dreams into a reality and she gets to go to the ball, but at what cost?
