Cinderella

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

This year, the New Wolsey Theatre goes back to where it all began, Cinderella – the Rock’n’Roll panto!

Sponsored by Ipswich Building Society

It’s time to Shake a Tail Feather and head Downtown to Ipswich Town Hall to meet the Mayor, Baron Hardup! It’s not easy being Mayor, with Prince Charming due in town for a Royal visit and a staff of only two – his beautiful, feisty daughter, Cinderella and the loyal and loveable Buttons. But when his lonely hearts ad is answered by the mysterious Rubella De Zees, who brings along her two dangerous daughters Hernia and Verruca, it seems he’s far more than Three Steps to Heaven. Thankfully, there’s a Fairy Godmother to make sure Cinderella is ready to Rock Around The Clock!

Written by Peter Rowe, the classic rock’n’roll panto, with a hint of soul, is back with another multi-talented cast of actor-musicians. Rock, pop and soul classics include It's Raining Men, In the Midnight Hour, Try a Little Tenderness and more!

We're Gonna Make You Wanna Shout!

Please note, the one and only late night special is Friday 21 December at 9pm.

Cinderella

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

This year, the New Wolsey Theatre goes back to where it all began, Cinderella – the Rock’n’Roll panto!

Sponsored by Ipswich Building Society

It’s time to Shake a Tail Feather and head Downtown to Ipswich Town Hall to meet the Mayor, Baron Hardup! It’s not easy being Mayor, with Prince Charming due in town for a Royal visit and a staff of only two – his beautiful, feisty daughter, Cinderella and the loyal and loveable Buttons. But when his lonely hearts ad is answered by the mysterious Rubella De Zees, who brings along her two dangerous daughters Hernia and Verruca, it seems he’s far more than Three Steps to Heaven. Thankfully, there’s a Fairy Godmother to make sure Cinderella is ready to Rock Around The Clock!

Written by Peter Rowe, the classic rock’n’roll panto, with a hint of soul, is back with another multi-talented cast of actor-musicians. Rock, pop and soul classics include It's Raining Men, In the Midnight Hour, Try a Little Tenderness and more!

We're Gonna Make You Wanna Shout!

Please note, the one and only late night special is Friday 21 December at 9pm.
