Sherlock And Cinders - By Tom Kirkham and Matthew Crossey
Join Holmes and Watson as they answer the prince’s summons and conduct their most challenging investigation yet - to find the foot that fits the glass slipper.
Disguised respectively as a duke and a female cook, Holmes and Watson set about finding the beautiful, mysterious lady who fled the prince’s ballroom. But with only a glass slipper, a dead mouse and a piece of pumpkin to go on, even Sherlock starts to wonder whether they have bitten off more than they can chew. Meanwhile, with a spiteful stepmother, two horrible stepsisters and a father bemoaning the theft of his prize-pumpkin, Cinderella has problems of her own.
Full of twists and turns and bringing together two of literature's most-loved characters, Sherlock & Cinders is a perfect ensemble piece for 9 to 13 year olds, with dozens of wonderful characters, laughs aplenty and nine original songs.
Contains 37 speaking roles with a flexible cast size of between 25 to 60+ (ideal cast size 50).
