Mr. Madden is also playing the role of Prince Charming in Disney’s highly anticipated 2015 motion picture release of “Cinderella”.

“We’re gearing up for what we expect are going to be fun promotions leading up to TBCC”, said MOR President & General Manager Ken Lucas. “We’re also thrilled to hear the news about their acquisition of Richard Madden for the event.”
