March 25, 2015


CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas –The Opera Workshop at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi will present Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Tony Award-winning, classic musical fairytale, “Cinderella,” on Thursday, April 2, and Friday, April 3, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center.

During this family-friendly evening of music and fantasy, attendees are invited to take pictures on the royal red carpet and join in the pre-show children’s activities, which will include games, crafts, and a few magical visitors.

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” was adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity. The hearts of children and adults alike still soar when Cinderella tries on her glass slipper to discover it fits her perfectly. Fans of all ages may be transported back to their childhood as they rediscover some of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most beloved songs, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible,” and “Ten Minutes Ago” in this hilarious and romantic experience.

Following the show, there will be a question-and-answer session with faculty and students who will address any questions about life in Texas A&M-Corpus Christi’s School of Art, Media, and Communication and the Department of Music.

Tickets will be available at the door and are $10 for adults; and $5 for students. For more information, contact Cassi McNabb at; or call 361.825.2553.
