Home » Attractions, Destinations » Torbay’s Cinderella


With the festive period pretty much upon us, pantomimes all around the country will be starting up. Every year, theatres around the UK put on versions of Aladdin, Puss in Boots, Snow White, Jack and the Beanstalk, and, of course, Cinderella.

Anybody taking a Torbay holiday this Christmas will be able to visit the Princess Theatre between the 17th December and 3rd January and take in a production of Cinderella.

But how do you put together a great pantomime? According to the Princess Theatre, it’s a little like this:


1 Fairy Godmother

1 cup of  Buttons

1 Dandini

1 Handsome Prince

2 Ugly Sisters

1 Cinderella


Take 1 Handsome Prince and 1 beautiful, kind and innocent girl,

Combine with 2 ugly step sisters, the worst in the world.

Sprinkle in the star dust of 1 Fairy Godmother and add  a generous helping of Buttons.

Whisk until light and fluffy.

Bake at The Princess Theatre  between 17th December and 3rd January alternating between 2pm and 7pm.

Put it together and what have you got?

Bibbidi – Bobbidi – Boo!!!

So, if you’re thinking of enjoying one of the Christmas Devon holidays this year, consider Torbay and a pantomime.
