Ever wondered what happened to Cinderella and Prince Charming after they got married? Well, Ballet Ireland takes up the story when the pair return from their honeymoon! The ballet starts after the Ball and the most famous incident in fairy-tale history – that of a lost shoe! You’ll meet the not quite so 'happily ever after' Cinderella and Prince Charming.
The ballet opens with hilarious scenes as Buttons and the Ugly Sisters prepare for the homecoming of the couple. However the ultimate fairy-tale couple are struggling to overcome their different backgrounds and Cinderella's humble beginnings as she settles in to being a Princess. What Cinderella doesn't realise, is that the Prince is bankrupt and he plans to auction off the Glass Slippers! Her fairy Godmother comes to the rescue once again and needless to say all's well that ends well and the pair truly are on the road to happily-ever-after.
The show will take to the stage in the Royal Theatre Castlebar on Sunday, May 5 at 8pm with doors at 7pm. Tickets cost €20 for adults, €15 for a child and €12.50 for groups of ten or more.
