Theatre Alba “Cinders: A Folk Tale” Aug 1st to 15th 13.00 to 14.00

Where did the story of Cinderella come from?

Theatre Alba’s children’s play this year is based on a compilation of the many folk tales from around the world that were the origins of the tale of Cinderella.

These tales were told to children around the camp fire in countries such as Ireland, Scotland and Germany, and by travelling folk.

Some of these original stories are very dark in places. Our play, however, is very family friendly and not too gruesome.

An outdoor promenade performance through Dr Neil’s Garden, children follow the actors and musicians around the gardens as the story unfolds.

Original music and songs, and audience participation.

Dress for the weather and wear stout shoes to cope with long grass in places.

NOTE: Some areas are not suitable for push-chairs, baby buggies or wheelchairs

Previous children’s shows by Theatre Alba have been well reviewed, and were listed in the Guardian in the Top 21 shows for families at Edinburgh Fringe 2016
