CINDERELLA

The spectacular family pantomime for 2019-20!

Following last year’s nationally award-nominated Peter Pan, The Courtyard’s creative team is looking for talented performers to join them for a lyrical foray into a Cinderella unlike any other.  Set on the banks of the ancient River Wye, magic, mystery and legend call our characters to find their true paths. Marred by innate bad manners, hampered by clumsiness and stymied by ignorance, the journey is inevitably (and hilariously) no smooth ride…

We will be holding auditions for professional dancers (who will also play the smaller roles) in September.  Please re-visit this page in August for more details.
