CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
An enchanting and surprising new version of one of the oldest stories ever told. When Ella's beloved mother died and her father remarried, little did she know what adventures awaited her. Her new stepmother and her exceedingly badly-behaved sisters make it their life's work to bully and abuse her, especially in preparation for the famous Northumberland Ball - the hugest, most extravagant party the North East has ever seen, which is saying something. Ella would love to go, of course, and meet the prince, who she happens to know is obsessed with hot air balloons, but she has to stay in the cold, miserable kitchen all alone. Besides, she has nothing whatever to wear... might there be a magical ghost out there to help her? A charming, thrilling and occasionally very silly Christmassy show for all the family.Author Stephen Sharkey. Music Michael Oliva. Producer Northern Stage. Director Erica Whyman. Design Angela Simpson. Lighting Charles Balfour. Musical Director Sam Kenyon. Choreographer Sian Williams.
