Cinderella: The Panto at the Huron Country Playhouse II

Cinderella: The Panto

A Tradition for the Entire Family
By Caroline Smith
Orchestrations and Vocal Arrangements by Nico Rhodes

July 5 to July 22, 2018

Huron Country Playhouse II


The enduring fairy tale gets a clever and contemporary makeover in this glittering stage production that features all the classic elements you remember – the pumpkin, glass slipper, masked ball … plus some unexpected and surprising new twists!

With its winning combination of popular songs, energetic dancing, tongue-in-cheek humour, and outrageous costumes, Cinderella will cast its magical spell and have you cheering for the heroine and her friends and booing the evil stepmother and wicked stepsisters.

So join us for family fun at the theatre this summer, and don’t worry – we’ll have you home well before the stroke of midnight!
