Cinderella takes on a new guise
Thursday, 04 November 2010
IF Cinderella met Prince Charming at a disco in the late 1970s, where would they be now? This is the premise of Fairgame Theatre’s unusual, but highly inventive interpretation of the well-loved tale of rags to riches. Ella, as she’s called in the production, returns to a life of poverty when the socialist Prince “Charm” gives up his royal title and money to save the recession-hit taxpayer. The two former royals will be arriving at Cinderford’s Miners’ Welfare Hall on Tuesday, November 16 with a cart and an ancient karaoke machine attempting to scratch a living by telling their story.
In collaboration with Stand + Stare Collective, Fairgame have introduced elements of digital and multi-media to the production. Part of that contribution is a chance for you to get involved right now!
A You Tube video titled Ella’s Prologue offers audiences and the public their first taste of this innovative show. But that’s not all. It is an appeal to the public by Ella to send in your stories, photos and songs connected to the people you love, which she plans to compile in a scrapbook and give to Charm for their 30th wedding anniversary.

Fairgame Theatre often incorporates real-life stories and experiences into their productions, but this is the first time they have used the internet and press to gather those stories. They will use the content you generate to help inform the show, display at venues/in the programme and on their website. So, if you have a romantic, funny or interesting tale of love that you’re itching to tell, get involved and send it in to: email@example.com
Fairgame’s production of Cinderella is funded by Arts Council England and supports their commitment to make the arts more accessible. The high-energy performance uses a disco soundtrack and elements of interactivity for wide appeal.
