Cinderella YouTube Premiere
We are thrilled to announce that this Saturday 11 April at 3pm, we will be streaming our 2019/20 Mercury Pantomime Cinderella, to your screens via YouTube Premiere – oh yes we will!
This Easter weekend treat will go live at 3pm on Saturday – then all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy this fun filled, family friendly show from the comfort of your own home!
If you can’t join us for the premiere, don’t worry, Cinderella will remain available for you to watch until Sunday 19 April, giving you a whole week to watch and re-watch your favourite bits.
We’re pleased to be able to stream Cinderella to our audiences completely free of charge as part of our #MercuryOnline programme, however if you would like to support us during these unprecedented times, please click here. Thank you.
You are cordially invited to the ball of the year with Cinderella, the ultimate rags-to-riches tale.
Poor Cinderella spends her days cleaning, cooking and tidying for her rotten step-sisters. That is until one day the Prince decides to host an extravagant ball to find his princess and insists that every eligible lady should attend. Little does Cinderella know, life is about to turn itself upside down and an exciting adventure awaits.
Will Cinderella escape her daily chores? Will the Prince find his happy ever after? Will the Sisters ever stop their incessant whining? Cinderella is the perfect festive fix for the whole family to enjoy and will leave you singing all the way home – just don’t leave your slippers behind!
And don’t forget to check out our sparkly production images, taken by Pamela Raith, below:

Cinderella was originally live streamed to a number of local medical and care facilities on Friday 20 December 2019. Thank you to our Digital Producer, Ben Pugh, for making this live stream and resulting YouTube Premiere possible.
Enormous thanks also to all of the cast, creatives and crew who worked so hard to make Cinderella at Mercury at Abbey Field our third record breaking pantomime in a row, and so kindly allowed us to share this footage with you as part of our #MercuryOnline programme during the COVID19 UK lockdown.
