Come and have a ball at Platform this Christmas!

Packed full of songs, jokes and larger than life characters, this family friendly, joyful show from the team that brought you Sleeping Beauty last year and Mother Goose fae Easterhoose is the perfect way to get in the festive mood!

Cinderella wants more from life. Stuck in a stinky old basement, mopping floors and cleaning up after her mean stepsisters and her VERY mean stepmother, Cinderella dreams of a more exciting life. 

Then one day, Prince comes to town, to host the Glitter Ball! He invites everyone to come and sing a song! The best singer will get to travel the world alongside the Prince and be a star! This is Cinderella’s chance to escape. But her evil stepmother has other ideas...

Created for everyone over the age of 5, this new version of Cinderella will have lots of the things you’d expect, and quite a few surprises along the way too! 

We are also hosting some relaxed performances - see dates marked with an asterix.

Written by Lewis Hetherington and presented by Platform in association with Glasgow Kelvin College.

Some nice feedback on past Christmas shows…

"This is an atmospheric, engaging fairy tale where gripping storytelling is at the front and centre of the production. Platform in Easterhouse is a true gem in the East End and the constant, consistently highly quality of their productions deserve to be seen by as wide an audience as possible, Sleeping Beauty is no exception." Glasgow Theatre Blog (Sleeping Beauty)

“My favourite part was all of it!” P4 pupil from Aultmore Park Primary (Sleeping Beauty)
