Sodbury Players - Cinderella (2022) Tix gold.jpg


By Ross Brown


After Baron Stoneybrowke's 2nd wife goes missing on a cruise, he finds himself with two new step daughers who make his own daughter Cinderella be their servant. When Prince Atlas arrives in town to hold a royal ball, Cinders can only hope that her sisters will let her go.


Will Cinderella get her happily ever after? Will the party planners throw the best ball in town? Will Buttons become the stand up comedian he wishes? Hopefully, with the help of veteran fairy godmother Fairy Tale and trainee fairy godmother Fairy Fledgling

It was Charles Perrault who first introduced the glass slipper and fairy godmother to the Cinderella story in 1697’s Cendrillon. Other versions have found the heroine wearing a magic ring or magic gold, silver or fur slippers. Similarly, the spirit of Cinderella’s deceased mother has at times portrayed the fairy godmother-type character.

The first real pantomime version of 'Cinderella' opened at Covent Garden in 1820.
