From the director of Jack and the Beanstalk (2015), comes this brand new pantomime: Cinderella and the Pirates.
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’s 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.
While attempting to pillage Cinderella's father's house, Pirate King convinces them to throw a grand ball for Frederic's birthday. Ruthie and Sam prepare the food. Cinderella's fairy-godmother provides her with a beautiful ball gown. Frederic makes a grand entrance to the party, and all seems to be running smoothly until the Pirate King and the Major-General's sneaky plans are revealed, pitting them against each other.
The following day both groups prepare for battle, with Pirate King getting some inspiration from his mentors. In a surprise to all, Frederic and Ruthie side with the Cinderella’s family and help them prepare to go up against the pirates.
A final battle ensues, with twists, turns and a paradox along the way, before Cinderella and Frederic can live happily ever after.
