Cinders: The True Story
Season runs from 1st Dec 2018 to 9th Dec 2018
Bookings open 1st Nov 2018
This magical fairytale of Cinderella is like no other, but it does contain the usual elements: yes, there's a widowed Baron, remarried to a harridan of a Baroness, who dotes upon her two hideous daughters, Cinderella's step-sisters; yes, Cinderella is reduced to the life of a skivvy at Hardup Hall, befriended by fellow servant, the infatuated Buttons; yes, there's a Prince Charming looking for a wife, dogged by the King's servant, Dandini; yes, Fate brings the Prince and Cinderella together, not quite in the way you might expect, and they all live ... well, you know the rest! Yes, Fate operates in surprising ways, as you will see... Yet, this pantomime is no different to others: it combines slapstick, singing and dancing with the traditions of audience participation (yes, actively boo and hiss the baddies; cheer the goodies; commiserate with the down-trodden; take sides in the arguments - Oh yes, you can/ Oh no, you can't!) with the traditions of gender role reversals. Perfect entertainment for the Festive Season.
