Greenwich Theatre brings together a company of astonishing actor-musicians, and maybe a few ultra-talented birds, for this toe-tapping revival of one of the best loved fairytales.
With her mother gone and brought up by her father, young Ella loves nothing more than adventuring out with him, seeking out the birds that surround their home and learning their special calls.
However, when her father marries again everything changes. Finding herself under the control of a stepmother who just makes her cook and clean, and tormented by her new step-sister and step-brother, all the magic seems to have gone from her life.
At least, that’s how it feels until she meets a fellow birdwatcher in the forest, receives an invitation to a ball at the palace, and discovers there’s a lot more to those birds than she first thought.
