Robin Bailes's new version of the classic tale with additional lyrics by Jonathan Hales.
Robin Bailes has produced a fresh version of the traditional story that is faithful to the original. Cinderella is the downtrodden daughter of Baron Bankrupp, and ill-treated by her stepmother Baroness Crimea Scrounge and her daughters Cholera and Rubella. However she does go to the Ball and meets her Prince Charming, aided by her pal Buttons and her Fairy Godmother. This version has humour and slapstick in generous doses, and of course the unique Bailes & Hales parodies of popular songs, including Eye Of The Tiger, That's Not My Name, and I Feel Pretty.
