Think you know the story of Cinderella? Well, let us introduce Cindy and Ella: the REAL ugly sisters. Cindy wants to be rich, famous, up to her ears in glitter and is glued to her phone. Ella’s been practising her kick-boxing and just wants to have FUN.
When the girls meet a Prince who isn’t so charming, and a fairy godmother who’s not what she seems to be, Ella must save her sister from a terrible fate before midnight strikes. With help from a nutty squirrel (SQUEE!), can brave Ella make it in time?
This “absolute Christmas cracker” (Everything Theatre) was our first co-production with Polka Theatre.
