Last night I was invited to attend opening night of Cinderella at The Muny in St. Louis and it was so much fun!
I asked my mom to go with me and we had the best time! I think the last time I was at The Muny was when we went to see my cousin as a Muny Kid in Grease.
In case you didn’t know, this is The Muny’s 101st season and they revealed a brand new stage this year! You may have noticed that the on stage trees are missing, but don’t worry they will be replanted by next year!
Cinderella was such a fun show to watch, I loved listening to some of my favorite songs, and all of the actors were incredible, including the Muny Kids! One of my favorite parts though, was seeing all of the little girls in the audience dressed up as Cinderella! It was such a sweet thing!
