It’s January! It’s dark! It’s cold! Christmas is over and we’re all in tiers! We’re fed up! We’re bored! We’re miserable! We want some fun! We want some laughs!
WE WANT A PANTOMIME!
Of course you do. It’s that time of year. It’s only natural!
But the theatres are all closed. The seats are empty. The lights are off. The magic has gone…
…or has it?
Filmed over two weeks in venues across Somerset (all closed because of the virus), In Search of Cinderella is a co-production between Over the Wall, Somerset Film and Wassail, designed to bring a smile back to our faces while highlighting the very real struggle theatres and arts centres are having keeping their heads above water. Free to watch online for everyone, we do ask for a donation – whatever you feel it’s worth – IF, and only if, you aren’t struggling yourself!
