A familiar tale with a modern twist, our pantomime tells the story of a girl named Cinderella and her adventures in the charming town of Bromley.
Cinderella is lucky have lots of friends: Buttons the delivery person, Wellington the cat, and of course, all the little mice who live in the scullery where she spends most of her time. Unfortunately, her family isn’t quite so nice. Her two sisters – Dolce and Gabbana – pick on her, egged on by their mother – the wicked Lady Prada – whose only ambition in life is to marry off one of her daughters to royalty. But things are about to change for Cinderella when she meets Prince Russell of Bromley and his loyal, shoe-loving buddy, Jimmy Choo. However, for Cinderella and Prince Russell, all is not as it seems, and even Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother can’t magic up the perfecting ending by herself. Will Cinderella’s happily ever after begin when the glass slipper fits? All will be revealed after the clock strikes midnight.
Featuring a host of well-known characters, a selection of fabulous songs and some classic panto comedy, this is a show for all of the family!
This story isn’t just about shoes. At its heart is a tale of sisterhood, parent-child relationships, and the value of standing up for yourself. That and a lot of shoe puns. I’m really sorry about all the shoe puns. We set out to combine traditional panto with modern musical theatre tropes, mixing heart and humour to entertain adults and children alike. So, if you like your fairy tales with a bit of a twist, this is the show for you.Co-director, Shamini Bundell.

Built and owned by the Charitable Foundation of Guy’s Hospital following donations from Sir James Mantle Greenwood in 1975, the Greenwood Theatre is leased by King’s College London for lectures, student productions and external client bookings.
Fully air-conditioned, the raked auditorium seats 450 people. The stage is equipped with lighting and sound provisions and a full single purchase counterweight flying system for theatre productions. There are a total of 6 dressing rooms of various sizes, from small ‘principals’ rooms to large ‘warm-up’ rooms, plus a make-up/wardrobe room and board room for meetings.
The theatre is used extensively during the academic year, for lectures between 9am – 5pm and then student performances from 5pm – 11pm every weekday as well as rehearsals on Saturdays. During the summer months, usually May – September, the college’s demands of the theatre are much less.
