Chickenshed Theatre’s Tales from Shed team bring a panto with a twist to the Chickenshed Rayne Theatre this December.

Christmas Tales presents Cinderella in Boots retells the classic fairytale in a classic panto style, beginning at the point where Cinderella’s foot fits the slipper perfectly, but soon introducing a new dastardly villain in town – the infamous ‘de Boot’ who threatens to turn things upside down, inside out, and all-about. 

In a family show, filled with song, dance, mime, slapstick comedy, and plenty of opportunity for the audience to join in with the fun, Cinderella in Boots will especially delight the under sevens.

The show promises “inclusivity, laughter, and an unforgettable experience that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.”

Shows run from 2nd December through to 30th December

Tickets available from the Chickenshed website
