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...
