As a pantomime subject, Cinderella needs no introduction. Possibly the world’s most famous fictional story, there can be very few places where some adaptation of it has not been seen. The storyline remains uncluttered, the romantic interest strong, and above all, the comedy fast moving. Like all pantomimes, it should be played at a fairly rapid pace, and the faster the insults fly, the better. This helps point up the gentler scenes as they occur. Finally, I hope you’ll enjoy this version of “Cinders” as much as I did writing it. Norman Robbins
