Why See New Jersey Ballet - Cinderella?
Beware The Stroke of Midnight
Founded in 1958 by local dancers Carolyn Clark and George Tomal, the New Jersey Ballet has thrilled audiences with their artistic and technical brilliance, whilst instilling a life-long love of ballet in younger viewers with accessible performances since its inception. Don't miss their annual retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairy-tale classic Cinderella, brought to life with lavish costumes, dazzling set designs and breathtaking choreography.
Made easier for little ones to follow by the presence of an on-stage narrator, the production centers on the titular character Cinderella. When her mother dies at a young age, Ella's father takes a new wife, forming a new happy family with her two daughters. Yet their familial bliss is short-lived when Ella's father also dies, and her step-mother and step-sisters show their true colors, forcing the kind-hearted heroine to work as a maid, waiting on them hand and foot. When they deny her the chance to attend the local ball of the region's charming prince, she is visited by her fairy-godmother who frees her, conjuring a gorgeous dress and glass slippers for her to wear to the ball. Yet Cinderella must leave by the stroke of midnight before her magical finery fades...
