Overview

Octagon Theatre Bolton
Written by Mike Kenny
Additional Lyrics by Ivan Stott
Music by Rob Hiley
Director Ben Occhipinti

Five rats. One romance. No cheese.

It’s got all the traditional elements for a fabulous festive treat – a feisty girl who dreams of dressing up and dancing, a wicked stepmother, mean older sisters, and a slightly geeky Prince – but this Cinderella has one big difference. The rats are in charge.

Join Whiskers, Tail, Teeth, Ears and Claws as they tell their story, play live music, dance, sing and squabble their way through to the hilarious fairy-tale ending.

Cinderella is an entertaining and energetic production for the whole family from award-winning writer for children, Mike Kenny. Mike was included in the Independent on Sunday's list of Top Ten Living Playwrights and his plays are performed regularly throughout the UK and all over the world. His adaptation of The Railway Children won an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment.
