Nottingham Playhouse - Live Streaming of Cinderella the pantomime
We have reimagined our legendary family pantomime to bring some much-needed joy this festive season. The ultimate fairy tale adventure, join Cinderella as she attempts to outwit her Ugly Stepsisters and win the heart of the dashing Prince – with a little help from best friend Buttons and her very own Fairy Godmother, of course. Filled with panto humour, upbeat musical numbers and all the characters you know and love, this production is specially adapted to ensure a safe, comfortable and magical experience for all. How it Works At the time of booking, you will be sent a confirmation email. We’ll then be in touch closer to the time of the show with full details of how you join the performance online. As the performance is a livestream, you’ll be experiencing the show at exactly the same time as audience members joining us in person.
