Additional casting has been announced for the national tour of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella, which will launch Oct. 10 in Providence, RI, at the Providence Performing Arts Center.

Joining the previously announced Paige Faure, Broadway's current reigning princess, in the title role will be Andy Jones as Prince Topher. Jones, who understudied the role of Prince Topher on Broadway, can currently be seen in Bullets Over Broadway.

The tour cast will also feature Kecia Lewis as Marie, The Fairy Godmother, Blake Hammond as Sebastian, Aymee Garcia as Charlotte, Ashley Park as Gabrielle, David Andino as Jean-Michel and Antoine L. Smith as Lord Pinkleton.

Cinderella, according to press notes "combines the story's classic elements - glass slippers, pumpkin, and a beautiful ball along with some surprising twists. More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman with savvy and soul who doesn't let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. She not only fights for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too."



The musical has music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, a new book by Douglas Carter Beane and original book by Oscar Hammerstein II.

Cinderella is directed by Mark Brokaw and choreographed by Josh Rhodes. Music adaptation, supervision and arrangements are by David Chase, and orchestrations are by Danny Troob.

The creative team includes scenic design by Tony Award nominee Anna Louizos, costume design by six-time Tony Award winner William Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony Award winner Kenneth Posner and sound design by Tony Award nominee Nevin Steinberg.
