After a sold out run in Doha, Qatar (UAE), The Lilliput Children’s Theatre Company’s brand new show ‘Cinderella’ will be premiering at the Baxter Theatre in December. This modernized pantomime will run from Monday, December 19, until Saturday, December 24, at 10.30am daily. There are only six performances of ‘Cinderella’ and the show will be staged in the Main Theatre at the Baxter.
‘Cinderella’ tells the story of a sad and lonely girl who lives with her evil step-sisters. One day they receive an invitation to the Prince`s Ball. Cinderella`s fairy godmother grants her wish and sends her to the ball, where she spends all night dancing with Prince Charming. At the stroke of midnight she rushes out of the palace leaving behind her glass slipper. Prince Charming vows to find the beautiful girl who lost her glass slipper and when he finds her, they get married and live happily ever after. It’s a fairy tale classic for the whole family to enjoy over the Christmas holidays.
‘Cinderella’ is one of the world`s best loved fairy tales and is written and directed by Elton John Duffy, who has been producing children’s theatre for the past 23 years. This is a true Pantomime with loads of audience participation and popular songs from Justin Bieber, Black Eyed Peas, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake and Roxette.
Cinderella was last performed in Cape Town in 1993 and was Duffy’s first professional production. To celebrate his 23 years of performing and producing quality children’s theatre, this production has been re-worked and given a modern twist. This production stars Desle McConney as Buttons, Liande Valentyn as the Fairy Godmother, Shaun Klaasen as Prince Charming, Andrew Lightley as Augusta, Kyle Seconna as Petronella, Carmen Maarman as William and Monique Rockman as Cinderella.
* Tickets are R75 per person and can be booked at Computicket.
