Cinderella theatre productions are always great fun for the entire family, especially the younger ones. It's such a classic fairy tale that has become one of the most performed stage shows ever in its various forms: ballet, musical, the Cinderella opera and, most frequently, pantomime. From Manchester to London and everywhere in-between and beyond, any time you want to buy or sell Cinderella theatre tickets on StubHub, there will be plenty of different performances to choose from.
Cinderella at the theatre is always packed with lots of laughs, and with the camped up and vamped up caricatures of the nasty step-sisters so deeply engrained in our cultural psyche that they've become stars of the show in their own right. It's right up there with the other globally beloved pantomimes like Jack and the Beanstalk and Peter Pan. The most famous musical version was a television production in 1957, and it didn't take long for British theatre to cotton on to the entertainment potential of a stage version – the very next year, Cinderella was performed as a pantomime for the first time on UK soilat the London Coliseum. And thus, the tone was set for children's holiday festivities for decades to come. Cinderella theatre tickets will probably never lose their appeal to the kids, and the show remains close to the heart of everyone who loves musical theatre and the pantomime tradition in particular.
The Cinderella theatre career, if you will, took a new lease on life in 2013 when Rodgers and Hammerstein's original TV show, in which Julie Andrews played the heroine, was finally turned into a grand Broadway production by Mark Brokaw. Quite astoundingly, it was the first time that any version of the musical had reached Broadway. Laura Osnes played Cinderella, with Carly Rae Jepson and Fran Drescher among the cast; the latter turning a delicious performance as Cinderella's evil stepmother. The idea of Cinderella as musical theatre took off as if touched by the Fairy Godmother's wand, and it has since been performed in a countless variety of different productions. Some of the more interesting versions have included an R&B version with Whitney Houston and Brandy and an all-female J-Pop extravaganza in Takarazuka, starring Japanese girl group Morning Musume. So, you never know exactly what you're going to get with Cinderella theatre tickets – but you can know that you're in for a spectacular show for the whole family to enjoy.
