CINDERELLA - Live in Las Vegas

Before DVD there was Video and Laser Disc...
and in 1981 the
"Video Software Dealers Association"
was established, better known as "VSDA"
[These are the owners of the Video Retail stores]
and each year they have a huge convention and the studios
are there to show them the
New and Exciting products they have coming out...MOVIES!

The year is 1988
and The Classic
had been re-released theatrically
in 1957,1965,1973,1981 and 1987
it's going to be released
on Home Video and Laser Disc
for the First time ever!
This was the First Video
in the Walt Disney Classic Collection
to feature the "Sorcerer Mickey" Classic logo
before the Film
Now back to VSDA and Las Vegas...
Disney put together a Live Broadway style show
to present to the Dealers to get them to buy the movie...

Just to make it funnier, they cast guys in the roles
of the Step Mother and Stepsisters...

Here is the number "Sing Sweet Nightingale"
this was a lot of fun...
Just like the film, Anastasia is singing and
Drizella's playing the flute...
A fight breaks out and the place is in shambles
Cinderella is called in to clean up the mess...
a new song was written for the step sisters to sing to Cinderella...
I can't remember the title, but it was all about cleaning up the mess!
"There's a large carpet in the main hall... CLEAN IT!"...

Also if you per ordered your Video,
you got a FREE Lithograph!
Cool huh?
