Starring Ethan Lawrence (Bad Education), Lucy Kay (Britain's Got Talent), Richard Gibson (Herr Flick from 'Allo, 'Allo) and Miles Western ... and featuring real ponies.

Cinderella is meeting the Prince at the Royal Ball but her cruel Ugly Sisters tear up her ticket. Baron Hardup and the loveable Buttons try to stop her tears but only the magical powers of her Fairy Godmother can get her to the Palace in a golden coach pulled by real ponies. However, she must leave close to midnight or her beautiful dress will turn to rags

A pantomime full of knockabout laughter, spectacle, audience participation and the unexpected! From the makers of last year's inspired Aladdin.
