“Good, filthy, anarchic fun for all the queer family” **** Gay Times
Once again we arrive at that time, the grand unveiling of a quivering new production of the RVT panto… and here it is – Slipped! Cinderella… rebooted.
The Big Society Ball has arrived in VauxhallLand and Cinderella, desperate to attend and hopefully find love, has wangled her way to the party in her best new frock and a pair of Gucci knock offs, but the story doesn’t follow the traditional path (obvs). Featuring a fixated prince, a pair of evil anti-geniuses in the form of the Step mother and Step sister and a fairy godmother with some anger management issues, Slipped takes a path through the lost chapters of Cinderella.
But, can the downtrodden beauty Cinderella find love and finally get off Spinstagram and is her Prince even interested in her or just obsessed with her Jimmy Choo’s?
Will her Evil Step-Sister and Step Mum finally get their hands on the magic shoe in the hope of bagging a meal ticket for life (Oh you thought they were sisters? Sheesh, look closer)
And will the fairy Godmother, caught between Middle Earth and Middlesbrough, who’s had a wandful of everyone’s demands and never gets round to eating her Nandos EVER get a lie down, thank you very much!
Find out in Slipped – Cinderella rebooted.

Praise for previous panto’s
It all works together to make Rubbed! a fun, filthy and gloriously silly show and definitely something just for the grown-ups this Christmas.’ **** Mark Ludman – Britishtheatre.com for Rubbed!
‘It is nothing short of an hilarious night out and comes highly recommended if you are in the mood for some smutty, irreverent and wickedly funny comedy and are able to give yourself up completely to this first class adult panto experience.’ Jack the Lad Magazine for Charming Dick
‘The jokes come fast and razor sharp like a knife thrower on Red Bull. At times, the wit is so clever, it takes a moment for the laugh, or groan, to come but the pace never lets up and the quickfire comedy powers ahead.’ BritishTheatre.com for Goosed!
