Cinderella is One of New Jersey Ballet’s most popular productions for children. During a two-act romp through the classic fairy tale, the hours of the clock come to life and dance, a Fairy Godmother and Fairies of the Four Seasons make an appearance, and the pumpkin turns into a coach.
Splendid sets and costumes, glorious dancing, and New Jersey Ballet’s hallmark “Storyteller” narration ensures that everyone can follow the story with ease.
