In April, 2002, at the Manville, NJ, People Care Center, a new one-act musical production of Cinderella was premiéred, based on the non-musical version by Andrew J. Parks that has frequently been performed at the New Jersey Renaissance Kingdom, but with new songs and incidental music by me. Here are the songs. You’ll need to download the Scorch plugin from Sibelius to see and hear them, or, without doing that, you can just listen to the versions.
- Cinderella Dust-maid!, sung by the stepsisters as they taunt the heroine.
- They Taunt Me and Tease Me, sung by Cinderella as she meditates at her mother’s grave.
- Royal Gavotte, played at the first day of the royal festival.
- O Lethe, Precious River, sung by Cinderella's father, who drinks a little.
- Look Around, This House is a Disaster, sung by Cinderella's wicked stepmother.
- Let Joy Be All My Song, sung by Cinderella as she contemplates seeing the prince again.
- In Old Vienna, There Is a Café, sung by Prince Johann’s former tutor, remembering when he was young.
- In Old Vienna, There Is a Café, concert version with piano instead of solo flute.
The following numbers are not meant to be interesting in themselves, but are parts of the show. They're here mainly so that our "orchestra" (one flute) could get revisions as I made them.
- Page 3 sting, incidental.
- Scene 2 opening, incidental.
- Mother's entrance music, played as Cinderella's dead mother appears to her.
- Scene 4 opening, incidental.
- Scene 5 opening, incidental.
- Scene 6 opening, incidental.
- O Lethe, Precious River, (reprise)
- Mother's second entrance, incidental.
- Scene 8 opening, incidental.
- Mother's third entrance and playout, incidental.
