A touring musical production of “Cinderella” opens this year’s Children’s Performing Arts Series on Oct. 19 on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University.

NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Children’s Performing Arts Series at Stephen F. Austin State University will open its 2023-24 season with a touring musical of the childhood favorite “Cinderella” on Thursday, Oct. 19, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.
Bullied by her two mean stepsisters, Cinderella’s future looks bleak until her Fairy Godmother casts a spell and sends her to the ball. How will the Prince ever find her when she flees at midnight, leaving behind a single glass slipper?
“True to the story, bringing to life this tale for all time, ‘Cinderella’ is full of original modern songs, bursting with more hilarity than you can imagine and, of course, a happy ending,” said Diane Peterson, Fine Arts Box Office manager and director of the children’s series.
The Children’s Performing Arts Series, presented by the Micky Elliott College of Fine Arts, features shows designed to entertain, educate and engage young audiences of all ages, according to Peterson.
Presented by The Panto Company USA, “Cinderella” targets children in kindergarten through sixth grade. Performances are at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Turner Auditorium is located in Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive.
Tickets are $9 for individuals and $7 per person for groups of 20 or more. Call 936.468.6407 or 888.240.ARTS or visit for tickets or more information.
