MIDNIGHT is a major new musical that is sure to delight audiences young and old! Loosely inspired by the Cinderella story, this ground-breaking and enchanting new tale features Ella, a feisty, funny and passionate young heroine who doesn’t want or need a so-called Prince Charming. Enchanted by this alluring stranger, the prince finds himself in uncharted territory and quickly learns that ‘Ella’ is like no other. Can he prove his worth? Can she ignite his desire for change? Can all be achieved before the magical stroke of MIDNIGHT?
