Theatre503 and Sleeping Trees present

Cinderella and the Beanstalk

14 Dec 17–6 Jan 18

Main House: Seated

Why choose one panto this Christmas when you can choose all of them?

'Infectiously bonkers' and 'breathtakingly witty', Cinderella and the Beanstalk is the perfect festive treat for those who like their panto with a twist. 

Three seemingly unstoppable performers (and one live musician) play over 60 characters from more than a dozen classic stories, including Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Peter Pan, Hansel and Gretel, Pinocchio, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and many more. There's anarchy up the beanstalk in this fast-paced, physical comedy where the laughs come at breakneck speed!

'The most fun you'll have this Christmas... does for pantomime what the Reduced Shakespeare Company did for the Bard, only better' 

★★★★ What's On Stage


'It's not often you find a show that can delight three generations in equal measure... an absolute must-see'

★★★★★ Culture Whisper


Blackmailed by the scheming Rumpelstiltskin, follow would-be princess Cinderella on a perilous adventure to the top of the beanstalk to retrieve the coveted golden eggs. But with Prince Charming, the Fairy Godmother, Jack's pregnant cow, and a small army of supporting characters all doing their bit to get in the way, getting her hands on these oversized eggs may not be quite so straightforward...

Created by the multi-award-winning comedy trio Sleeping Trees and directed by Tom Attenborough, Cinderella and the Beanstalk was a huge critical and audience hit when it first premiered at London's Theatre503. Join a brand new cast for 2017 as they recreate every panto character you’d expect to find (and some you might not), whilst doing their best to sing, dance and fight their way through 100 minutes of panto pandemonium!

For everyone aged 6 - adult
Duration 1 hour 55 minutes (including interval)
