Christmas is the perfect time for magic and fairy tales, so Justine editors had to catch Disney sweetheart Lauren Taylor in the latest live retelling of the Cinderella story. Lauren Taylor (Disney’s Best Friends Whenever) is currently starring as Cinderella in the Lythgoe Family Panto’s A Cinderella Christmas at the Pasadena Playhouse in Pasadena, CA. Performing alongside Glee‘s Alex Newell, the Disney darling is the perfect fit for this rags-to-royalty classic, but this isn’t just your average retelling of Cinderella. The creators put a twist on the beloved tale by incorporating pop hits from celebs like Bruno Mars, Meghan Trainor, Lorde and more. If you’re in the Pasadena area,  it’s a must-see during the holiday season! Get your tickets here for performances now through January 8, 2017.
