Grace Mouat (Six, & Juliet and Legally Blonde) will be playing Ella in the Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella. The show will be playing at the Hope Mill Theatre from the 1st November – 11th December 2022.

Grace Mouat said: “I genuinely cannot explain how excited I am to be playing Cinderella. It has been a dream of mine to be part of a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical and obviously the film is ICONIC!

“I cannot wait to meet the incredible company and get started on this new version in Manchester. ‘Impossible things are happening every day!’ Pinch me!”

A new Broadway version with a Tony-nominated book by Douglas Carter Beane premiered in 2013 featuring several fresh characters and songs. A contemporary twist on the classic tale, the musical has been staged in concert in London, but never received a full stage production in the UK. The musical was originally set to run in 2020.

Creative team for the production include Joseph Houston who will be directing, with co-direction and choreography by William Whelton. Additionally, musical supervision by Leo Munby, musical direction by Audra Cramer and set and costume design by Elly Wdowski. Also featuring projection by George Reeve, lighting by Aaron J Dootson and sound by Adam Fisher. Lastly, new musical arrangements are by Jason Carr and casting by Jane Deitch.

The cast joining Grace Mouat in Cinderella has yet to be announced.
