"Glorious…exuding joy and happiness…a wholly refreshing take on Cinderella."
The Stage

By Mike Kenny
Directed by Sarah Brigham

Celebrate the festive season with Derby Theatre's family Christmas show - another magical tale performed by a merry band of actor-musicians. 

Inspired by the traditional Grimms' fairy tale, Olivier Award-winning writer Mike Kenny creates a fun and feisty retelling of Cinderella, full of humour, enthralling storytelling, with plenty of Christmas sparkle thrown in. Live music, stunning original costumes, fantastic set designs and a talented cast of actor-musicians complete a magical Christmas show for the whole family.

Drawing her dreams in the hearth-side ashes with only the kitchen rats for friends, Cinderella wishes for something better than the taunts of her mean step-sisters. When she hears about the kingdom’s most fabulous ball she’s determined to strut her stuff on the dance floor, but can she escape her pot-washing prison to attend the party of the year?

Most suitable for ages 6+
