Auditions for our second pantomime are nearly here! From the director of Jack and the Beanstalk (2015), comes a brand-new pantomime: Cinderella and the Pirates. With more songs, more laughs and more cream pies, this comedy mashup of Cinderella and The Pirates of Penzance will delight audiences of all ages.

Cinderella lives with her loving father, a retired Major-General. But her two older sisters treat her like a slave. Frederic is an apprentice upon a pirate ship, captained by the evil Pirate King. But when these two meet, they are swept up in a tale of adventure, sword-fighting and love.

Filled with popular songs by Meghan Trainor, Whitney Houston and Queen, Cinderella and the Pirates will have you booing and cheering throughout the show, as you laugh along to the characters’ antics.
