Following the success of Ghosted – Another F**ing Christmas Carol, The Other Palace Studio will premiere a new musical parody this Christmastime. A Very Very Bad Cinderella promises a brand-new twist on the classic fairytale and will run from 1 December 2023 to 7 January 2024.

“We are delighted to carry on our newly established tradition of deliciously naughty Christmas Capers in the Studio after the sold-out success of Ghosted – Another F**ing Christmas Carol last year," The Other Palace Artistic Director, Paul Taylor-Mills, said in a statement. "A Very Very Bad Cinderella is sure to make us laugh and blush at the same time!”

If you believe you already know the story of Cinderella, think again. Told from the perspective of the Ugly Step-Sisters, this new musical parody features songs taken straight from the songbooks of West End Wendy's.

Neil Hurst (Tracks, Dating for Dogs, The Government Inspector) and Jodie Prenger (Coronation Street, I'd Do Anything) have penned this new show, with further cast and creatives to be announced.

A Very Very Bad Cinderella is at The Other Palace Studio.
