You shall go to the ball!

Gather round and enjoy this specially edited recording of our legendary pantomime. Featuring bonus Christmas content, this truly unique performance will make for a memorable Christmas Eve for the all the family. You’ll also be experiencing the show at the same time as other families watching from their homes up and down the country, as this one-off Online Special will be streamed at 7pm on Thursday 24 December.

The ultimate fairy tale adventure, join Cinderella as she attempts to outwit her Ugly Stepsisters and win the heart of the dashing Prince – with a little help from best friend Buttons and her very own Fairy Godmother, of course.

Filled with panto humour, upbeat musical numbers and all the characters you know and love, Cinderella is sure to bring some much-needed festive joy.



How it Works

At the time of booking, you will be sent a confirmation email. We’ll then be in touch closer to the time of the show with full details of how you join the performance online on the day.

Money Back Guarantee

If Government guidance changes closer to the time of the pantomime and we are unable to proceed with the recording, please be assured that you will be offered a full refund.

Other Ways to Watch

We will be welcoming audiences to join us in-person at Nottingham Playhouse, and have a number of measures in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit for all. Click here to find out more.

Livestreamed Performance
Cinderella will be livestreamed on Saturday 19 December, meaning you can enjoy the performance as it happens from the comfort of your own home. Click here to find out more.

On Demand
Whilst our Christmas Eve special is a one-off performance streaming at a specific time, our On Demand version of the show allows you to enjoy Cinderella at whatever time suits you and your family best. The recording will be available to rent from mid-December and more information will be announced soon.

What to Expect

We want this year’s show to be just as magical and fun for all the family as you’ve come to expect from Nottingham Playhouse, but have made some adaptations to the show in order to keep our in-person audiences and all members of our team safe and comfortable.

There will, therefore, be no interval in the show and the performance will run for approximately 75 minutes.
