Synopsis

Cinderella eagerly awaits the return of her Father, Baron Stoneybroke, with his new wife, Baroness Morwenna, and two stepsisters for her. The Baroness controls the Baron by means of a special medicine for his obscure illness, so he does not recall getting married nor does he see the unfair treatment of his own daughter. The ugly sisters (played as Dames) make Cinderella’s life difficult.  Buttons is steadfastly loyal even though his love is unrequited, but with the arrival of Dindianna (Dandini’s young sister) there is hope for him. Meanwhile the Ladies in waiting continue their quest for one of them to marry the prince.  A senile Chamberlain. A hen-pecked King and a strong-minded Queen attempt to force the Prince to marry a suitable lady. The fairy Godmother of course helps Cinderella to go to the ball and the Knife grinder plays his part in her ultimate rescue.
