Once upon a time there was a girl called Ashputtel. She’s called Ashputtel because she sleeps in the ashes by the fire. Now, let us show you her story; of a stepmother, two wicked but beautiful stepsisters, a Prince, and a magical tree. You are invited to meet her family, share her adventures and discover how she finally gets what her goodness deserves!

We have taken the 200 year-old Grimms folk tale, and carefully re-shaped it. With music and song, drama and comedy, adventure and shoes, we present this classic folk tale as a brand new musical for all ages!
