Minnesota Theater Scraps Cinderella Production, Fires Cast Because ‘98%’ Were White

A theater in Minnesota says they have canceled their production of Cinderella that had been slated for later this year, letting the staff go because “it was 98% white.” Chanhassen Dinner Theatres issued an announcement Monday declaring that they “made the decision to cancel our upcoming production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s ‘Cinderella’,” with the hope of “beginning the production process again with a new title will allow us to put into practice an intentional process based on the work we have been doing towards equity and inclusivity.”
