About the Show

The galaxy has lost its groove, and so has Cinderella! Growing up on Planet Centra, she felt as limitless as the stars, but now her jealous stepmother and two selfish stepsisters have her questioning her potential. Will the Prince’s Galactic Hip Hop Mask Ball help Cinderella to trust in the power of her voice? With dazzling lyrics, pitch perfect characters and a sassy robot sidekick, Hip Hop Cinderella teleports the timeless classic across the cosmos and reminds us to reach for the farthest moon.

A brilliantly imaginative, futuristic romp

The Up Coming

Did You Know?

  1. First launched as a piece of digital theater in 2020, Hip Hop Cinderella is blasting into the third dimension on the New Victory stage for its New York premiere!
  2. With its constellation of rapping styles—melodic, braggadocio, battle rap—Hip Hop Cinderella is a time-warping take on proving your naysayers wrong through spoken word.
  3. A published sci-fi author (under a pseudonym), librettist Scott Elmegreen’s script references everything from Newton’s laws of motion to quantum entanglement. Other shows to his name with a scientific bent include Awesome Allie, First Kid Astronaut  and The Magic School Bus Live! The Climate Challenge.
