A Northern Stage Production

An enchanting and surprising new version of one of the oldest stories ever told. 

When Ella's beloved mother died and her father remarried, little did she know what adventures awaited her. Her new stepmother and her exceedlingly badly-behaved sisters make it their life's work to bully and abuse her, especially in preparation for the famous Northumberland Ball - the hugest, most extravagant party the North East has ever seen, which is saying something.

Ella would love to go, of course, and meet the prince, who she happens to know is obsessed with hot air balloons, but she has to stay in the cold, miserable kitchen all alone. Besides, she has nothing whatever to wear... might there be a magical ghost out there to help her?

A charming, thrilling and occasionally very silly Christmassy show.

For children aged 7+ and their families.

"charming performances... the scene stealer is the wickedest of wicked step mothers, wonderfully portrayed by seasoned professional Bev Fox" Whatsonstage.com

"The Toon, depicted in it's Georgian heyday, looks ravishing in Angela Simpson's design..." **** The Guardian
