Cinderella: based on Grimm’s Fairytale for just £20
Thursday 29 November 2012
Be captivated by this dazzlingly original take on the classic fairy tale.
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…
When this production of Cinderella performed in Bristol last year, it enchanted audiences with its original interpretation of one of the best-loved fairy tales of all time. With their quirky visual style, crystal-clear storytelling, original live music and pitch-perfect ensemble acting, director Sally Cookson and team bring this classic tale of fortunes reversed startlingly and imaginatively to life – a Christmas show to enchant all ages over 6.
