The shoe must go on! Cinderella announced as 2024 panto

The award-winning team behind Derby’s smash-hit pantos will be back for 2024 with the classic fairytale Cinderella. As this year’s festive extravaganza Mother Goose gets underway at Derby Arena, we’re excited to announce the 2024 pantomime is already confirmed – and tickets are on sale now!

The show will be brought to you by the same team behind Mother Goose and past shows including 2022’s triumph Aladdin.

Cinderella has big dreams, but with her sisters digging in their ugly heels, it’s going to take help from her best friend Buttons – and a little magic from her Fairy Godmother – if she’s going to make it to the ball and her happy ever after before midnight. Featuring sparkling sets, fabulous frocks, side splitting slapstick and not one, but two outrageous dames, it’s set to be an unmissable treat for the whole family.

Produced by Derby-based Little Wolf Entertainment and Derby City Council’s Derby LIVE team, the stage is set for yet another festive cracker that’s sure to get stand out reviews, like Aladdin in 2022:
