Emporium bring Panto back to Brighton with this magical re-telling of the classic fairytale.
21 November 2013 - 4 January 2014
2pm & 7pm
Full of colourful characters, thrilling theatrical effects and sumptuous costumes Cinders is the perfect escape from the Winter weather for all the family.
Of course no pantomime would be complete without slapstick silliness, a damsel in distress rescued by her dashing Prince and a truly wicked, boo-able villainess, and Cinders has these by the glittery bucketful!
Ooooh! when Cinders and her Mother face peril in the spooky woods.
Aaaaah! at the first meeting of our heroine and her Prince.
Gasp! as the Fairy Godmother does things with a pumpkin that would astound Laurence Llwelyn-Bowen.
Suitable for ages 3+ (though does contain 'pantoscary scenes of mild peril' and a few whizz-bangs that may be a bit much for the very young or tremulous.)
This show includes the use of haze, smoke and a few pyrotechnics.
Playing: 21 November 2013 - 4 January 2014 / 2pm & 7pm
Duration is approximately two hours, including a twenty minute interval
