Once Upon A Time, There Was A Kind, Honest Man Who Worked Hard All Day Long Making Shoes...The Everyman Theatre appreciates some children may not be ready for the full "Cinderella" pantomime experience, so we are delighted to be able to offer our own magical alternative for those children aged between 4 - 7 years, in the Everyman's intimate studio space.

The production uses elements that are at the heart of pantomime whilst safely surrounding the audience with the warmth of friendly puppets and a cosy environment.
