Beat 3 â€“ But One Day
The King of the land, who has become impatient for his son to choose a bride and produce an heir, decides to hold a ball and invites all the eligible maidens in the kingdom, regardless of their social status, so that the Prince will (hopefully) choose a wife. Of course, Cinderella wants to attend.
Beat 4 â€“ Because of That
Cinderella finds a dress of her late motherâ€™s that she can repair and wear to the event, but her stepmother and stepsisters deliberately keep her busy, afraid of how much prettier she is. They assign her extra chores, leaving her no time to prepare herself for the ball.
In response, Jaq, Gus, and the other animals decide to fix up the dress for her, using beads and other materials the stepsisters threw away. With their help, Cinderella is ready to go to the ball. However, when she attempts to go with her family, her stepsisters rip out the parts that were theirs, leaving the dress in pieces. Cinderella is alone and left behind.
Beat 5 â€“ Because of That
Cinderella storms out to the garden, distraught, where her Fairy Godmother arrives to help. She creates a coach from a pumpkin, transforms mice into majestic horses, and turns a horse and dog into a coachman and footman. She also provides a gorgeous gown to wear to the ball and a stunning (but impractical) pair of glass slippers. The only catch? The magic will all end at the stroke of midnight, so Cinderella must be gone from the ball by then.
When Cinderella arrives, the Prince is instantly smitten. The King orders the Grand Duke to make sure no one interferes with their evening. He keeps the other ladies back as Cinderella and the Prince dance and wander outside on the palace grounds. Her stepsisters wonder who the woman is from afar.
Beat 6 â€“ Because of That
When the clock tolls midnight, Cinderella panics and runs away before she and the Prince can exchange names, the Grand Duke tries to stop her, but Cinderella manages to flee the palace, losing one of her slippers on the way. Cinderella and the animals revert to their former appearance when the magic ends. But Cinderella discovers the other glass slipper is still on her foot and takes it home.
The Prince, now in love with Cinderella, states he will only marry the girl whose foot fits the glass slipper. Since they donâ€™t know who it is, the King orders the Grand Duke to try it on every girl in the kingdom until he finds her!
