New Adventures have announce casting for the much-anticipated West End return of Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella, which opens on Saturday 9 December 2017 at Sadler’s Wells, where it plays a seven-week season until Saturday 27 January 2018.

Fresh from their triumph playing Victoria Page in The Red Shoes, the role of Cinderella will be performed by Cordelia Braithwaite and Ashley Shaw. Cinderella’s heroic Pilot, Harry, will be performed by Will Bozier, Andrew Monaghan and Dominic North.

The Angel (Cinderella’s ‘Fairy GodFather’) will be danced by Paris Fitzpatrick and Liam Mower, while Sybil, Cinderella’s Step-Mother, is performed by Madelaine Brennan, Michela Meazza (London only) and Anjali Mehra. Robert, Cinderella’s Father, is performed by Alan Vincent and Dan Wright.

Cinderella’s Step Brothers and Sisters and the people of 1940’s London complete the cast: Steph Billers; João Carolino; Reece Causton; Jackson Fisch; Glenn Graham; Sophia Hurdley; Jack Jones; Nicole Kabera; Kate Lyons; Jamie McDonald; Stephen Murray (Former Central School of Ballet/New Adventures Student Associate), Danny Reubens; Katie Webb and Seren Williams.

One of New Adventures’ most loved productions Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella is a thrilling and evocative love story, set in London during the Second World War.

The internationally renowned choreographer’s interpretation of the classic fairy tale has, at its heart, a true war-time romance. A chance meeting results in a magical night for Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.

With Lez Brotherston’s sumptuous costumes and sets, which won an Olivier Award for his original designs, and lighting by Olivier Award-winning Neil Austin, Cinderella will be performed in Surround Sound, designed by Paul Groothuis and featuring a specially commissioned recording played by a 60-piece orchestra. Matthew Bourne’s vivid storytelling has never been more heart-stopping and touching.

Matthew Bourne said today: “Cinderella is one of my most heartfelt works and a personal favourite amongst my re-imagined classic stories. I’m delighted to have brought together this cast of current star performers, experienced New Adventures veterans and exciting young talent. I’m thrilled to see another generation of Company dancers take on this beloved production.”

2017 marks 20 years since Cinderella first premiered in the West End and New Adventures’ 16th consecutive Christmas season at Sadler’s Wells.
