Cinderella 2017


Cinderella - Hazlitt Theatre 2017 Pantomime

Starring Rustie Lee and Stefan Booth

Friday 1st - Sunday 31st December 2017

Tickets Prices vary from £14 to £22.50

The ever busy, the ever put upon, the ever beautiful Cinderella only dreams of one thing, what all girls truly wish become a Princess. Little does she know that a Prince exists that only wants someone out there to love him for who he is and not what he is.

Could these two star crossed lovers ever meet? Not if Cinderella's wicked, awful and extremely ugly Sisters have any thing to do with it. They are prepared to be overly ghastly and down right rotten to make sure Cinderella gets nowhere near the Prince despite all three being invited to the ball. Surely true love will win the day and Cinderella will live happily ever after.

The most magical Pantomime of them all!
