Cinder and the Ellas

Cinder and the Ellas dream of running away with the circus; all they have to do is win the heart of the handsome and talented Prince, heir of the world famous circus family. He is looking for a new aerial act to star in his next production, whoever wins will get to travel the world with the Prince! But things get a bit messy for poor Cinders, with only her heart, her strength and her phone, Cinder will rise above all to win the heart of the prince and set herself free (with a little help from her Fairy Godmother App!) Whose side will you be on? Who will win in the end, and is winning really everything? The company that brought you Catch Me and The Elves and Shoemakerhis show is full of Fidget Feet’s humour. Cinder and the Ellas is a stunning mix of aerial feats mixed with dance, theatre, comedy and video art. A pint sized Cirque Du Soleil, Fidget Feet is an internationally renowned company that is one of Ireland’s own. “The show was extremely entertaining and really held the children’s attention. It was a great modern take on an old classic fairytale. It dealt with the issue of bullying in a very easily understood and relevant way. The colours and acrobatics helped to engage the children. The use of modern technology like “the app” and the backdrop screen was very effective. This serious theme of bullying was made light by the use of humour and song. All in all a fun, enjoyable and socially educational experience.” – Teachers at Scoil Chríost Rí
