Cinderella, Hornsby RSL
In this delightfully scripted, original story of everyone’s favourite, we find Cinderella hard at work in the kitchen. But there to help her is her faithful friend and companion Buttons. Lurking nearby are her two Ugly Stepsisters! Santa will arrive at the end of the show to wish all the lucky children a Merry Christmas!
They make Cinderella’s life a misery and tell her she can’t go to the Prince’s Ball and must stay and do all the work around the house. However Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother appears to release her from all her chores and with a wave of her magic wand, whisks her off to the Ball!
At the Palace Ball the Prince meets and dances with Cinderella but alas at the stroke of midnight she has to leave the Ball or her dress will turn to tatters and all the Prince has left to remember her by is Cinderella’s slipper. The Ugly Sisters believe the slipper will fit them, which leads to a hilarious shoe fitting scene. All is resolved when the Prince finally tries the slipper on Cinderella and at last he finds his true love!
Don’t forget to collect an age appropriate show bag for each child attending the show.
- Where: Hornsby RSL
- When: Sunday 15 December, 11am
