Cinderella the musical is a hilarious and romantic show with lots of cheeky wit for adults, and magic and fun for the kids. A fabulous experience for anyone who’s ever had a dream.
Suitable for kids aged 8 years old and over, however the storyline does move away from the original with some twists and turns so best to prepare and explain to them that it won’t be exactly the same, that it is an inspired version. Also keep in mind that the show is 2 and half hours long, and the evening shows finish at 10pm.
Make sure to ask for a booster seat once you arrive in the theatre so the kids can see. Most seats have a decent view, but for the kids, try for the Stalls section up to letter F somewhere in the centre or otherwise the Dress circle in the first 5 rows are the best.
