Since our fabulous production Cinderella: A Fairytale premiered here in 2011, we’ve performed it at three other venues for Christmas, it has been seen by 60,000 people, been nominated for an Olivier Award and won an Off West End Award. We’re absolutely delighted to bring it back to Bristol this Christmas.
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…
With their original and absorbing visual style, crystal-clear storytelling, original live music and pitch-perfect ensemble acting, the dream team from Tobacco Factory Theatres and Travelling Light with whom we created 101 Dalmatians and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, bring this classic tale of fortunes reversed, startlingly and imaginatively to life.
