Synopsis

It joinsSnow-White and the Seven Dwarfs, Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding HoodandThe Three Little Pigsin a glittering line-up of wickedly funny productions which children and audiences just love

Cindy defies her Ugly Sisters, meets a magic fairy and lands a dance with the prince at the palace ball.

So far so good!

But far from being the perfect gentleman, the prince turns out to a perfect beast and chops off the heads of Cindy's meddling sisters ...

The magic fairy grants Cindy one more wish but what will she do to escape her sticky predicament

As with every one of these great Roald Dahl musicals, Cinderella is based on an orchestral commission by the Roald Dahl Foundation.

The concert work, from which the schools' musical is derived is by Vladimir Tarnopolski, and schools can use the extracts provided from the orchestral work to enhance their performances

Schools can buy a performance licence online on the A&C Black Musicals website, which also has a forum, a Hall of Fame and regular updates.
