Please be aware of government guidelines before setting off.

  • The godfather of musical theatre Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber is back with another belter in Cinderella the Musical.
  • Get ready for a hilarious and witty retelling of everyone’s favourite Disney princess story, Cinderella, with a 21st-century twist...

Planning ahead for your next family theatre trip? Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella might just be the perfect one – especially if you and your kids love Disney, comedy, and musicals. In a totally new re-imagining of Cinderella, Lloyd Webber takes you on a journey to the most beautiful village in the world, with the most beautiful people in the world. But Cinderella is a misfit and she doesn’t belong here, and soon things start to go terribly wrong... Cinderella The Musical is a story about beauty, according to Lloyd Webber, “it’s about beauty being what you are rather than what you try and make yourself”. Should Cinderella change herself to fit in? Find out in this fairy-tale when its heroine possesses modern ideals in a traditional setting.

We all know Cinderella is a story of transformation, but this new re-telling brings the Disney classic into the 21st century. With a script from Killing Eve’s Emerald Fennell, you know that hard-hitting moments will have a devilishly funny overtone that everyone can enjoy. Fennell infuses modern ideas about change with a traditional setting, featuring absolutely stunning outfits and set design. Retaining the fairy-tale feel, Lloyd Webber debuts a brand-new score that immerses you into a Disney wonderland.

Red theatre seats.

Starring Carrie Hope Fletcher and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt, the star-studded Cinderella cast promises a truly magical show. Tickets will be in very high demand, especially as theatre-goers will be craving more Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals, so you won't want to miss this one.

Want to feel like a princess yourself? Why not take a trip to Buckingham Palace or Kensington Gardens whilst you’re in town.

What to know before you go

  • Situated in central London’s West End, there are plenty of places to eat around the theatre if you’re feeling peckish. The closest places to eat within walking distance are; Philomena's Irish Sports Bar & Kitchen, Margot (Italian), Hawksmoor Seven Dials (steak) and Sarastro (Mediterranean). Equally, there are plenty of cafés around if you want a little boost and snack before the show, particularly for the matinée performance. Café Verona and the Poetry Café make our cut. With such a variety, you’ll have more trouble deciding where to go than finding somewhere!
  • Unfortunately there are no baby-changing facilities at the theatre.
  • There are step-free and accessible toilets. The theatre also operates under the LW Access Scheme - please see their website for details.
