Welcome to Russia, the setting of Sutton Coldfield’s 2021 Pantomime spectacular… Cinderella!
Imagine a time of ice-cold winters with the snow laying deep on the frozen hard ground….
Imagine a palace where the fountains spouted icicles and Russian bears hibernated in the forests…
Now imagine a draughty old country house with the only warmth from a sooty fireplace … and that it was your job to keep the fire burning! Out in all weathers collecting wood and sleeping in the cinders of the fireplace, because your wicked stepmother and your ugly stepsisters were too mean to let you sleep in a bed.
That’s what happened to poor Cinderella and this is the story of how she dreamed of escape, of being warm and of meeting a handsome Prince who could save her from this miserable life.
After the huge success of Aladdin in 2019, the Production Exchange comes back to the Town Hall with a great cast of actor musicians, beautiful scenery, stunning costumes and a talented young ensemble to perform the ultimate family classic.
With support from the government’s Cultural Recovery Fund, Sutton Coldfield Town Hall is excited to welcome the cast and crew to the Royal Town for a limited run before Christmas and a thrilling return to traditional family entertainment.
