It's time to GET LUCKY and head DOWNTOWN for a chart-topping panto packed with rock, pop and soul.

It's not easy being the Mayor, Baron Hardup, with Prince Charming due in town for a Royal visit and a staff of only two - his beautiful, feisty daughter Cinderella and the loyal and loveable Buttons. But when his lonely hearts ad is answered by the mysterious Rubella De Zees who brings along her two dangerous daughters Hernia and Verruca, it seems he's far more than THREE STEPS TO HEAVEN. Thankfully, there's a Fairy Godmother to make sure Cinderella is ready to ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK!

Get ready for a pantomime party for all generations, as the multi-talented cast of actor-musicians present your favourite story packed with your favourite songs. Rock, pop and soul classics include IT'S RAINING MEN, MOVES LIKE JAGGER, I GOTTA FEELING, FIREWORK and many more - WE'RE GONNA MAKE YOU WANNA SHOUT!
