A modern, panto-style reworking of the classic tale, including all the traditional characters: downtrodden Cinderella, Rockerfella (formerly known as Prince Charming!), Buttons, the Ugly Sisters and the Fairy Godmother, with a selection of additional characters, from music managers and paparazzi, to good and bad fairies - all placed in a world of fame and celebrity.
With fresh and relevant things to say about fame, fortune and how true love will win in the end, it has a wonderfully comical script, fabulous songs and plenty of opportunity for audience participation. This is the perfect choice for your Christmas or any-time-of-the-year production and is sure to bring the house down.

'We used this in our pantomime and we had a great response. The children loved singing the songs, and all had a great time! My personal favourites are "You're going to the ball" (I got to sing that one!) and "Your feet are to big!" Thank you very much for the wonderul songs!!!'

'We are doing Cinderella Rockafella in our year 6 summer play and we (on behalf of most of the class) are really looking forward to it! Sarah is auditioning for 'Cinderella' and Saskia is auditioning for 'Fairy Cake' or 'Fairy Liquid'. We can't wait until the play is performed in front of family and friends (and KS1). We love it although lots of people are nervous about the amount of solo's!'
Sarah And Saskia,
St. Mary's School, Putney
'I was Fairy Cake in the play and me and all my friends really enjoyed it. I think all of the teachers will remember the boys who played the ugly sisters!'
'When I heard our school was doing Cinderella and Rockerfella for the KS2 Christmas prouduction, I auditioned for Anastacia (ugly sister) and I got the part. I was thrilled! I love the song 'I'm so in love with me', it's awsome! Out of the Ark are really good panto writers!'
Cuckney C Of E Primary School
'It was really good, Naphen was Rockerfella and I was street person three and I think all schools could do the play.'
'I was made Rockefella in this production and I loved it. I practised singing my favourite song 'It's not all it's cracked up to be' every night! And when it came to the production, I loved it and my parents loved it too!'
'When I saw the ominous words "forthcoming pantomime", I was so excited that the brilliant Out of the Ark were venturing into new territories, and I was not let down! I received my copy of the book and CD, and have not stopped listening to the wonderfully suitable panto-style songs and lyrics. The script is fantastically written, one of the most hysterical yet simple in nature (just as a good panto is) adaptations I've ever heard. My sincere congratulations to everybody involved with the publication of this masterpiece, and to anyone in doubt, this can be performed at any time of year, particularly in the inevitable "panto season" - it's sure to "bring the house down"!'

Shepherd Little - Sara Ridgley & Gavin Mole(A brand new nativity for 3 to 5 year olds. Shepherd Little, Bethlehem's smallest resident, has a little trouble with the truth. So, when he makes a claim he's seen a person with wings who has an amazing story to tell, who on earth's going to believe him?)
Match Girl’s Christmas, The - By Nick Perrin(This short musical is a clever interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Little Match Girl’, which interweaves the original tale with the Nativity story and places both within a Victorian Christmas fair. It is straightforward to produce as there is relatively little dialogue and most of the action is integral to the songs. It’s a very moving piece, especially when performed in the round.)
