Cinderella hits the dance floor

New Vintage Theatre bringing a new twist to an old tale in Kelowna

The days of disco are back with a glass-slipper twist.

New Vintage Theatre is proud to bring a crazy-fun summer musical to Kelowna in A 1970’s Cinderella.

It is Los Angeles, 1977, and the disco queen has a problem. Prince, her son, can’t find somebody to love.

Enter Cinderella and her dreams of meeting someone sweet and cool-like John Travolta or Al Pacino. But the only thing standing in her way is her super freaky stepmother and glamorous stepsisters.

With a little help from her ingenious friend, Mouse, and The Godfather will Cinderella get her happily ever after at the disco ball? New Vintage invites audiences this summer to hustle on down and see a hilarious adaptation of the classic fairy tale, updated with a 70s sensibility that will leave all ages groovin’.

A 1970’s Cinderella is created and brought to life on stage by artistic director Bonnie Gratz.

“This show previously has had a sold out run at Stage West in Calgary and I am excited to have it running this summer in Kelowna,” she said. “It is one of those productions that people love-the costumes, the incredible music of the time, dancing and our talented cast makes this a show that is perfect fit for all ages. There is even roller skating.”

The show stars Dana Murphy as Cinderella and features Graham Daley, Josie Morrow, Adam Weaver, Zoe Sommerfeld, Joelle Neufeld, Kayla Hunter and Bonnie Gratz, reprising her role as the wicked stepmother.

Tickets are on sale for their magical indoor shows July 13 to16 at The Mary Irwin Theatre.
