The Glass Slippers

by Emma Reeves

With a top team of actor musicians, songs, dancing, and inventive design, all thrown in with a bit of sparkle and magic for good measure!

The real story…of a girl who is brave, strong, clever, and determined to prove herself.

The real story…about a lonely prince, a new family and sisters who might not be as bad as you think.

The real story…of everyday objects that change with a touch of magic and a clock that at the stroke of midnight changes everything.

This is the real story…of Cinderella and the glass slippers!

Tutti Frutti Productions re-imagines this classic story, with some new twists and turns to make you chuckle and inspire your real self to shine through. For children aged 3+ and their families to enjoy.
