Keke Palmer to Star as First Black Cinderella on Broadway (VIDEO)

If the shoe fits, make Keke Palmer Cinderella! The lovely lady will become a princess for her next big acting gig starring as the first black Cinderella on Broadway! Congratulations, K!

The 21-year-old Nickelodeon star will be joined by a slew of fellow celebs including former The View hostess Sherri Shepherd as her evil stepmother (more on that in the video below). Later on in the show's run, Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes will take the reins from Sherri to fill the same role.

Also booked for the megawatt production are the following A-list actors and actresses: Joe Carroll (Prince Topher); Victoria Clark (the Fairy Godmother); Ann Harada (stepsister Charlotte); Stephanie Gibson (stepsister Gabrielle); Peter Bartlett (Sebastian, Prince Topher's mentor and Lord Chancellor); Todd Buonopane (the rebel Jean-Michel); and Phumzile Sojola (Lord Pinkleton).

To prepare for her once upon a time debut, Keke recently got her hair tripped to a cute pixie cut. See it for yourself on her Instagram! We totally love it and can already see Keke making the magical transition from soot-stained underling to gorgeous, glamorous princess. Nothing like short hair to really set off a tiara!
