Think you know the story of Cinderella? Well, let us introduce Cindy and Ella: the REAL ugly sisters. Cindy wants to be rich and famous and is glued to her phone. Ella’s been practising her kickboxing and just wants to have FUN.
When they meet a Prince who isn’t so charming and a fairy godmother who’s not what she seems, Ella must save her sister from a terrible fate before midnight strikes. With help from an unusually nutty squirrel (SQUEE!), can brave Ella make it in time?
With unforgettable original songs by award-winning composer Felix Hagan, we’ll be raising our brand-new roof this winter. Join us for a magical topsy-turvy adventure: we’re going to have a ball.

Polka Theatre creates a range of productions to be enjoyed by children from 0-12 years. Whilst all children may attend our production of Cinderella: the AWESOME truth, we feel that this story is best suited to an audience aged 5+. This may be due to the themes or presentation style. We encourage you to consider this when booking tickets.
