A twist in the classic story of Cinderella

Age suitability: 8+

“Cinderella’s Sisters”
That’s what the papers called them.

And it stuck!
How did that happen?
How did they end up as a bit part in somebody else’s story?

Well now they’re back.
To set the record straight

Pam and Penny were the princesses of ballroom dancing. Waltz, foxtrot, quick step and jive. They could do them all. Nothing stood in their way. Surely they would win the ballroom championships…

..but they didn’t.

At the championships it was their sister – their younger sister, their step sister, the girl called Cinderella – who danced her way to glory. From that day she was known as Cinderella, Queen of the Ballroom. And from that day Pam and Penny were known forever as Cinderella’s Sisters.

Produced by Catherine Wheels (Martha, Lifeboat, Cyrano) and written by the multi-award winning playwright, Mike Kenny, Cinderella’s Sisters is a story of ambition, broken dreams, sibling rivalry…and ballroom.

Cinderella’s Sisters is recommended for everyone aged 8 and up.
