The most magical pantomime of all, you'll have a ball!
Shone Productions are thrilled to be returning to Middleton Arena this Christmas with the most magical pantomime of them all - Cinderella!
Cinderella has always wished of leaving her life of a servant and meet a handsome prince. After the announcement that Prince Charming is to be holding a royal ball, it seems she may get her wish after all. But with the Ugly Sisters about who knows what can happen, still with the help of Cinderella's Fairy Godmother and a generous helping of fairy dust perhaps her wish will come true?
But there is only one way to find out, so come on down to the Middleton Arena this Christmas to see spectacular scenery, stunning costumes, brilliant songs and dance routines and hilarious jokes. From the same team behind last year's smash hit pantomime, Snow White. This will be a fabulous production so get your tickets now and don't be late for the ball!
