Cinderella Ball, or Lucy at the Ball
Cinderella Ball, or Lucy at the Ball was a musical comedy by an unknown author.
The original text
The play was apparently part of the repertoire of a touring company of the London based troupe of Christy Minstrels, while on a triumphant tour of the USA and five tours of England and Europe (where their patrons had apparently included Queen Victoria). No text or information about the play or the author has been found so far.
