Director’s Talk: CINDERELLA

Meet the Director of

CINDERELLA

Mike Mackenzie

Mike is thrilled to be back at Metro to direct the Christmas Panto, Cinderella. Previous Metro Theatre shows include Moon Over Buffalo and The 39 Steps.

Join him and some of the cast of CINDERELLA immediately after the show on Friday, December 22nd  for an informal chat.

Mike will speak about:

  • his vision for the production
  • the modernization of the Cinderella fairytale
  • invite some of the cast to talk about working on a traditonal British pantomime
  • and then open it up to questions from the audience.

From the very start, Mike worked with writer Catherine Morrison to help shape the story for a modern time. He felt that with a long overdue resurgence of strong female role models permeating our culture, it was about time that Cinderella was told in a way that didn’t end necessarily with “boy and girl fall in love, get married and live happily ever after”. Mike knew that Cinderella could succeed in life without being married to a Prince and being left to sit on a throne day in and day out – that there was more to her story, and who she could be.

There is no additional charge for the Director’s Talk, just stay in your seats or move up a bit closer to the stage. The session will last approximately 20 minutes.
