The Glass Slippers by Emma Reeves

24th Sep 2020 to 2nd Jan 2021

tutti frutti and York Theatre Royal present a one hour show for children aged 3+ and their families. Perfect for weekend, half term and twilight family shows or for school performances.

Available to tour from 11th October 2020– 2nd January 2021

 

This story is all about keeping it real, because we all know ‘if the shoe fits…….’

The real story…of a girl who is wise, strong and intelligent, but who has lost everything and must find it all again!

The real story…about love, imagination and being true to yourself, but with a prince who doesn’t know if he wants to find the girl of his dreams!

The real story…with a pumpkin that changes into a carriage, sisters who are never going to change, and a clock that changes everything at the strike of midnight.

All thrown in with a bit of sparkle and magic for good measure!

With a top team of actor musicians, real music, dancing and inventive design, tutti frutti will re-imagine this classic story, to make you cry, make you chuckle and to inspire your real self to shine through!
