When feisty Isabella is banished to the castle kitchens for fighting with her stepsisters, her dreams of going to the royal ball seem in tatters.

Renamed Cinderella, and put to work by the fierce Sergeant Puff (who has never laughed), she befriends the shy kitchen boy, Callum, who warns her of hidden dangers in the castle corridors. But while Cinderella dreams of dancing, her scheming stepmother has other plans in mind...

Written by a leading children's playwright and described by the Guardian as 'one of the strongest, funniest pieces of children's theatre in years', Stuart Paterson's Cinderella is a dazzling and entertaining reworking of the classic tale.

Following recent sellout successes, including Calendar Girls and Allo, Allo, Harleston Players will be performing Cinderella at Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston on Friday and Saturday, January 25 an 26, and Friday and Saturday, February 1 and 2, at 7.30pm, with matinee performances on both Saturdays at 2.30pm.

Tickets at £8 (concessions £6) are available from Harleston Pet Stores or by phoning 01379 676324.
