Cinderella: a fairytale (2016)
About the show
When Ella’s mother dies, she is brought up by her devoted and loving father who teaches her the names and calls of the woodland birds that surround their home. But when her father marries again, Ella’s peaceful life is turned upside down by a host of new and unpleasant relations. It appears her only allies are the feathered friends who roost in the trees, but they are no ordinary birds...
Our 40th original production was our third co-production with Tobacco Factory Theatres. We returned to the origins of the Cinderella story in order to create a new version of one of the oldest, best loved fairytales of all time. Audiences packed the theatre and the show had rave reviews.
In 2012 we took the show to the brand new St James’ Theatre where it was nominated for an Olivier Award. In 2013 we took it to the Unicorn Theatre where it won an Off West End Award (Offie) for Best Show for Children & Young People. For Christmas 2015 Cinderella: A Fairytale delighted new audiences at mac Birmingham. It has now been seen by 60,000 people, and we are delighted to bring it back to Tobacco Factory Theatres this Christmas.
Fun for everyone in the family aged 6+
