Raleigh Little Theatre proves again that dreams really can come true. The beautiful lass-who-lost-her-slipper makes her 27th annual appearance in hopes of finding her Prince Charming. This beloved fairy tale, retold in the style of English pantomime, has been delighting audiences in the Triangle area for more than a quarter century. Combine elegant costumes and magical scenery with song and dance, conniving step-relatives with a zany Fairy Godmother, and you have all of the ingredients for holiday cheer. Note: “Cinderella” is being performed on the Raleigh Little Theatre Complex (next to Cameron Village and NC State), NOT at the downtown Fletcher Theater.
