A French/English pantomime-style play, based on Cinderella.
Written by Jon Meier.
Lots of humour and great fun - especially the 'France has Talent ' middle section.

Most of the dialogue is in English but there's plenty of French, repeated and reinforced visually.
Suitable for years 6-9. Duration around 30 mins.

17 in the cast (scope for flexibility, sharing and doubling of roles). Minimum 13 max 22
Others can be used for sound, props, poster and programme design etc

Can be worked on in 1 day (with scripts) – intensive work with a scripted performance at the end of the day.
Show in assembly or at a languages celebration event
or just have fun reading it through.

Ideal for a language/ drama festival competition
Sixth-formers can help with the production.

Language is visual and contextualised.
Audience will also understand it as the story is familiar and the French is explained.

Script contains details of props and sound effects, with links to downloadable sound effects.
Vocabulary lists are also included with the script showing the vocabulary on each page.
3 page thumbnails of the opening scenes are also available as a free taster.

Cindy sound files are on:
