With COVID-19 lockdowns a continuous reality, Aussie parents are looking for new ways to keep kids entertained at home. This winter, it’s time to give Netflix a night off and bring a new kind of live theatre into your home.

Just in time for Christmas in July, the world’s first interactive virtual pantomime, Cinderella Live, makes its Australian debut. Pantomimes have been a long-standing British tradition and a unique theatre experience that is often a child’s first taste of live performance. For the first time, Australian audiences can now experience the vibrant sets, flamboyant characters and joys of audience interaction that embody a proper British pantomime.

Just in time for Christmas in July, the world’s first interactive virtual pantomime, Cinderella Live, makes its Australian debut. Pantomimes have been a long-standing British tradition and a unique theatre experience that is often a child’s first taste of live performance. For the first time, Australian audiences can now experience the vibrant sets, flamboyant characters and joys of audience interaction that embody a proper British pantomime.

While our British counterparts are extremely familiar with the concept of pantomime, most Aussie kids haven’t had the pleasure of enjoying exaggerated role-reversal and over-the-top characters. So, before the clock strikes midnight, make sure you grab your tickets for this world-class event and discover the wonderment of pantomime.

Directed by Charlotte Peters and with an all-star cast including Chris Rankin (Harry Potter), Chris Johnson, Katy Clayton and Jessica Ellis, the production opens with a press performance on 19th July and runs from 23rd to 25th with special school performances in both Australia and New Zealand.

Cinderella Live also stars Kimberley Hart-Simpson, Martin Callaghan, Tim Churchill, Steve Fortune, Elin Pavlin- Hinde and Cuan Durkin. Get your tickets here.
