You SHALL go to the panto!

Cinderella tries hard to live up to her late Mother’s expectations, but when she is constantly bullied and treated like a servant in her own home, it’s hard to be kind and good.

Her new ‘family,’ the McClatchys, have seen off her Dad and gone through the family fortune like a Lottery win. Her Stepmother Lady Loco McClatchy is a vile, vain and selfish woman – and most of that has rubbed off on her two spoiled daughters, Vera Verscratchy McLatchy and Annie Amanny McLatchy, with their love of all things designer. When the Palace announces that there is to be a Royal Ball for the returning Prince Louis, there is much excitement and the McLatchys decide that the Prince will be their next ‘must have’ accessory.

Cinderella doesn’t have much time for frivolous things like royalty and designer handbags. She would much rather be trying to make a positive difference in the world, but fears things may never get any better. However, with her best pal Buttons and a magical Fairy Godmother on her side, the story could take an unexpected turn for the girl dressed in rags…

Following our 5-star reviewed 2022 production of Sleeping Beauty, we’re delighted to welcome back the writing team Ken Alexander and Fraser Boyle to put their original spin on one of the most magical and beloved fairytales of all time. Expect glorious spells and glass slippers, mice and mayhem, pumpkins and puns – all with the local flair and originality you’ve come to know and love from The Gaiety panto. It’s going to be Bibbity Bobbity Braw.

There’s no time to waste! Pre-order your tickets for Cinderella before the clock strikes midnight!
