Happily Ever After, Brought to Life Outdoors
We are thrilled to welcome you back to live theatrical performances in a new outdoor venue – THE LEDGE AMPHITHEATER in Waite Park. This setting will be truly magical for a lavish production with all the Cinderella moments you love – the pumpkin, the masked ball, the vivacious fairy godmother, the glass slipper, and more! Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, this masterpiece has been twice remade; first in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren, and again in 1997 featuring Brandy and Whitney Houston. This show will entertain the entire family, with jaw-dropping transformations and amazing special effects brought to life with local talent.
Songs to Note: “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It’s Possible,” “Ten Minutes Ago”, and the hilarious “Stepsisters Lament”

- SINGLE TICKETS & LIVE STREAM TICKETS: On sale June 1, 2021
We are committed to providing you with the highest level of customer service and want to be sure the tickets you purchase are valid and fairly priced. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you only purchase tickets for GREAT Theatre events through the GREAT Theatre, Paramount Center for the Arts and Ticketmaster ticket offices.
Third party ticket resellers (such as StubHub) are trying to make quick cash and selling tickets WAY overpriced! The safest way to purchase tickets it to visit GREATTheatre.org and it will direct you to the correct ticketing site (Paramount Center for the Arts, Ticketmaster for The Ledge Amphitheater or the Helgeson Learning Lab Theatre.) Ticket resellers are asking for much more and those additional dollars do not come back to support GREAT or our mission. Tickets purchased from any individual, company or website other than through a direct link from GREATTheatre.org are purchased at a patron’s own risk and may be fraudulent, counterfeit or invalid for admission to the performance.
The start time may be delayed or the performance may be interrupted due to inclement weather or other reasons. If a performance is cancelled before one hour of playing time has elapsed, your ticket will serve as your rain check.
Rain checks may be redeemed for our special rain date performance on Sunday, July 25th at 8:00pm (if the rain date is rained out refunds will be provided if requested.) We will make every effort to present the performance, and typically will not cancel the performance before 9:00 pm. A delayed start time or the length of an interruption in the performance will be determined by theatre management on a per case basis.
Notice of delays or cancellations will be made via email to the ticket purchaser email, over the theatre public address system and will also be posted online at GREATTheatre.org.org and Facebook. Only actual, legible tickets, in their original form will be accepted as rain checks.
