A filthy, gay fairytale—with a happy ending.
The Wellington Footlights Society presents the New Zealand premiere of Soho Cinders, a charming and hilarious modern musical adaptation of the Cinderella story.
Under the neon lights of London's Soho district, Robbie is barely making ends meet by working at his mother's launderette, under the constant harassment of his abrasive step-sisters. When he becomes romantically entangled with engaged mayoral candidate James Prince, their worlds are turned upside-down as they fight for true love in this fabulous spin on the classic fairytale.
Originally debuted off-West End in 2012, Soho Cinders is an urban musical fable strictly for grown-ups, packed with dirty humour and infectious melodies that will keep you buzzing long after the clock strikes midnight!
The Wellington Footlights Society is proud to support InsideOUT for this production of Soho Cinders. Footlights will donate 10% of ticket revenue to InsideOUT to help their mission to provide safer schools and communities for rainbow (LGBTQIA+) young people.
