Here's what's going on in town today

'Cinderella' at the Wharton Center

A fresh adaptation of a classic tale arrives at Wharton Center today, so get out the Windex and polish up those glass slippers. This Rodgers and Hammerstein version of “Cinderella” originally aired on television in 1957 with Julie Andrews. A stage version finally debuted on Broadway in 2013, with an updated book by Douglas Carter Beane. This iteration retains all the magic and romance of the original but promises new twists to keep audiences enthralled. On Sept. 25 there will is a $55 Spotlight Dinner with special guests before the show, and a free after-show talk with members of the cast is available on Sept. 26.

7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday, 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets start at $35. Wharton Center, 750 E. Shaw Lane, East Lansing. (517) 432-2000, whartoncenter.com.
