Cinderella (Schools Performances) Image
7 December - 16 December 2022

As well as public performances of Cinderella, we also have performances specifically tailored for schools. These run late in the morning and are only open to schools (except our relaxed performance).

If ever a young girl needed a break, it’s Cinderella. She never gets a day off. She sleeps in the cellar and her clothes have more holes than clothes. And what of her dreams of freedom and adventure? Well, they’re just dreams.

Until one night…

A deranged trainee fairy with a wonky wand turns up at the wrong house, utterly lost and eager to please. Next thing you know, she’s turning rodents into horses, lizards into servants and shoes into glass. Hang on, glass shoes!? Whose side is she on?!

But Cinders has the chance to be the belle of the ball… as long as she’s back before midnight. Will she get the adventure she’s always dreamed of? Or will her sisters spoil the perfect Christmas party?

This year the team that sailed you to Treasure Island, that took you up the Beanstalk and down the rabbit hole to Wonderland invite you to a madcap adventure filled with dastardly deeds, nutty mice and a pumpkin with a mind of its own! There’ll be songs, silliness and festive fun by the carriage-load.
