Just like our last few Christmas shows, this is deffo notfor kids so treat yourselves to a babysitter and book in for a great night out!

Once upon a time there lay a land that was so beautiful thatit was almost good enough to be a World Heritage Site! Over the last eighteenmonths times had been hard as folk were not allowed to leave their homes unlessthey had lots of money. But one day the King brought joy to all the people ashe announced the arrival of his baby daughter Ora! All of the villagersrejoiced!

Well, nearly all. The wicked fairy Maleffluent had evilplans in place for the princess so she slapped a curse on Ora that can only bebroken by true love's kiss. After a bit of time travel, an 18-year kip forMaleffluent and some serious wooing will Ora escape the evil fairy's clutches?Can the good people of Liverpool drive her back to the hellhole she came from(Manchester)? How many times will we make jokes about the council that might get usshut down?

The full cast is now confirmed as: Emma Grace Arends, Emma Bispham, Jamie Clarke, Michael Fletcher, Lindzi Germain, HayleySheen, Andrew Schofield, Keddy Sutton and Liam Tobin. The creative team from The Scouse Cinderella and TheScouse Snow White are already hard at work.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
