David Wood’s CINDERELLA follows the story closely, though the characters differ from many versions. Cinderella is much more sparky than the usual down-trodden waif; the prince is glum and gawky until he meets Cinderella, who, not knowing who he is, tries to teach him the latest dance craze. The Fairy Godmother is a practical, down-to-earth woman with magic powers, and Cinderella’s best friends are two mice, who are eventually turned into the horses pulling Cinderella’s coach to the Ball.
