Duration: 1 hour no interval
Venue: Thirsk Town Hall

In this inclusive family pantomime, Same Difference Arts presents a collaboration with Pocket Panto’s Dame Ruth for the much-loved classic Cinderella!

Suitable for ages 5+

This hysterical family pantomime follows Cinderella as she struggles to outwit her nasty step sisters, get to the Prince’s Ball and save the enchanted forest. Forced to work hard in the laundry all day, Cinderella stands no chance of attending the royal Ball. Can Buttons and her magical forest friends help Cinderella to achieve her dreams and prove that she has a choice, worth and a voice in this world?

Same Difference have made an inclusive pantomime, that is wonderfully funny and brings contemporary twists to the Christmas pantomime.

Combining fairy-tale enchantment with side-splitting comedy, this year’s panto will leave the whole family entertained and enchanted!
