The forthcoming musical is set to star Carrie Hope Fletcher in the lead role of Cinderella.

Alongside acting, Fletcher also hosts a hugely popular YouTube channel and has authored five novels.
The forthcoming production is a brand new take on the classic fairy tale based on an original idea by Emerald Fennell, the Emmy Award-nominated lead scriptwriter on the second season of the smash-hit television series Killing Eve.
Cinderella features lyrics by David Zippel, who has received multiple awards for his work on the Broadway production of City Of Angels, The Goodbye Girl, The Woman In White, and Liza At The Palace. Zippel has also received two Oscar nominations for his work on the Disney films Hercules and Mulan.
The production will be directed by Laurence Connor (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, School Of Rock, Les Misérables), with choreography from JoAnn Hunter (School of Rock, Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat).
