Cinderella has been sent to sleep in the kitchen by her mean step sisters Thisun and Thatun. But she’s found some lovely new friends down there, who think they can sort things out and make it all better – her new friends are Ears, Teeth, Claws, Tail and Whiskers and they are rats! Cinderella wants to go to the ball because she really wants to dance, her mum and dad taught her and she never gets the chance to practice. Thisun and Thatun have a different plan and they don’t want any competition in their plans to marry the Prince! Clever and fun, this play will spark young children’s imagination as this classic tale unfolds before their eyes.
