The king and queen throw a ball to help their son choose a bride. The shy Prince Dalliance decides to wait for a magical sign to make his life-altering decision for him. When a beautiful and mysterious lady in a sparkling blue gown appears, he is certain she is his one true love. Before he can learn anything about her, she runs off, leaving only a glass slipper behind. With the help of Elise, his faithful servant and best friend, the prince sets out to find his love by trying the shoe on every woman in his kingdom. His plan seems to have worked perfectly when the slipper fits a sweet young peasant. Later that day at his hastily-planned wedding, it is revealed that the bride-to-be was not at the ball and is an imposter. More ladies try on the shoe. More ladies’ feet fit in the shoe. More weddings almost happen. Finally, the prince discovers Cinderella, hidden away by her evil stepmother and stepsisters. But smart Cinderella isn’t ready to marry some stranger who can only recognize her by her shoe size. Sixty-Seven Cinderellas debunks ridiculous traditional storybook notions of romance and what it means to be a princess.
