Cinderella--Traverse, Edinburgh

Every day is a bad hair day for Cinderella… Read more …

The classic fairytale is beautifully re-imagined by Shona Reppe and performed by acclaimed puppeteer Rick Conte, in this highly visual award-winning production featuring secret hatches, hidden drawers and a handbag full of magic!

Following the galloping success of Black Beauty, Shona Reppe returns to the Traverse this Christmas with an enchanting show that will dazzle young people and grown-ups alike.

The critical consensus

Without a doubt, Cinderella will leave adults as enthralled as the children who likely brought them there in the first place.

****(*)Beth Blakemore, The Wee Review, 10/12/2017

45 minutes of deceptively simple storytelling that leaves an impact bigger than the Uglies’ egos!

****(*)Justine Blundell, Edinburgh Guide, 10/12/2017

This is a lovely piece of Christmas theatre, guaranteed to make anyone with an open heart feel better about the world.

****(*)Hugh Simpson, All Edinburgh Theatre, 10/12/2017

A gorgeous 55 minutes of fun.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 13/12/2017

The tone is pitched just right; sweet without being saccharine, and not afraid to revive some of the more gruesome aspects of the tale that others have sanded down over time.

****(*)Paul F Cockburn, Broadway Baby, 13/12/2017

Imaginative staging and puppetry gives the popular fairytale a new look.

****(*)Kelly Apter, The List, 13/12/2017

The children mesmerised by the peaks of warmth and kindness in the story’s telling know good work when they see it.
