The Dukes have taken the classic tale of Cinderella and worked their magic with a much needed and thoroughly modern twist.  If you’re looking a theatre trip this Christmas, Cinderella is the perfect festive treat for the whole family to enjoy.

Ella is set to work by her stepmother with no-one to turn to. Her only way out lies with the magical birds she finds in the forest. With the help of her feathered friends, Ella disobeys her stepmother and dons her best party frock and sparkling Doc Marten boots to sneak off to the Palace and dance the night away!

Go on Ella!
