A pantomime in the classic tradition.
A sweet young girl is bound to a life of drudgery by her cruel stepmother and tormented by her ugly stepsisters. Her one friend in the world is Buttons, manservant to Baron Hardup, until one day while gathering firewood in the forest she meets a charming Prince.
With a little help from her Fairy Godmother, the Prince falls madly in love with her. Frightened, she runs off, but the Prince vows to find her, and calls a Grand Ball for all the young girls in the kingdom.
The most famous game of hunt the slipper in all Pantoland is about to begin ...
Will the scheming Dandini thwart the plan ?
Surely it all ends happily ever after ?
It all begins with a Fairy Godmother
In disguise she enchants a Prince and Dandini
Enter Buttons, Cinders' only friend
And Buttons' secret admirer
Meanwhile Baron Hardup is hunting with his wife
Cinders' wicked stepmother
Meanwhile Cinders is gathering firewood
Dad wants the best for her but has his wife to consider
Not to mention her ugly stepsisters
But all might be well with a little help from her friends
Sure enough - here comes a prince
In a cunning disguise with his mate Dandini
But the gruesome twosome may have overheard
And they've brought the heavy guns into the plot
Invitations to the ball for everybody
Well everybody except Cinders
Getting dolled up for the ball
But poor Cinders has chores to do
You shall go to the ball !
Just as soon as you've finished all these jobs
Two dogs' dinners come to gloat
Making an exhibition at the Ball - to Dandini
But the Prince pines for his true love - and true love conquers
