SALT’s production of Rogers + Hammerstein's Cinderella is the timeless, enchanting, magical fairytale reborn in the new Broadway adaptation of the classic musical. This contemporary (and sometimes hilarious) take on the classic tale has all the hallmarks of originality, charm, and elegance and features Rodgers & Hammerstein's most beloved songs, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It's Possible,” and “Ten Minutes Ago.”  Perfect for the entire family, with a cast meet & greet following each performance!

The mystery of Dracula unfolds in an old, stone castle set in Europe. Prince Dracula and his bride Elisabeta are madly in love when the Prince is called to lead his nation into battle.

He vows, “never to die,” and terrorizes the lands as a vampire. This tale of love, heartbreak, and the reunion of two lovers will excite, thrill, and intrigue audiences.
