The Dukes theatre in The Round in Lancaster will be transformed into a wintry woodland for this year’s Cinderella.

From November 22 to January 11, it will stage a new version of Sally Cookson and Adam Peck’s Cinderella, which premièred with an award-winning production at Bristol’s Tobacco Factory Theatre in 2011.

The original went on to win an Off West End Award and was nominated for an Olivier.

Sarah Punshon directs The Dukes production of Cinderella and Heysham’s Helen Longworth returns to the cast for her third consecutive Christmas.

Trees from Sizergh Castle near Kendal will adorn the set created by the team behind The Dukes’ two most recent successful Christmas productions of Aladdin and Peter Pan.
