This Christmas, Cinderella finds herself in the most magical place on Earth, the Rainbow Factory, and she is inviting you to watch her Christmas Wish!!
If you have never visited the Rainbow Factory before, they turn the most ordinary into the most magical and bring storybooks to life using drama, song mixed with enthusiasm and amazing talents. We have been going regularly for the last 15 months and whatever activity they do, they do so well and so this show will be no exception!
You’re probably thinking that you might go to a “proper” theatre to see a “professional” show as part of the Christmas activities. While they are all well and good, you are probably going to be a fair distance from the stage and the little ones will be wanting to get on their feet and dance or get some sweets, all while you worry about upsetting the people all around you…
Well, this is why you should come to this show if you have young children (age guide 2 – 7). The stage is a few inches above the ground, the seats, well, they are actually beanbags for the kids, right next to the stage – they can touch the characters, they are part of the show. Also, everyone is in same boat, hoping their child doesn’t cause a scene (ok, maybe just me!) so if it does happen, it really doesn’t matter because everyone has been there!!!
And don’t think that because it isn’t set in a formal theatre, it won’t be of excellent quality. One of the stars/scriptwriters is Lydia Toumazou, who has worked on various SEN projects and is a former teacher, and is an absolute star with a brilliant voice with such a bubbly and warm character. Another star/scriptwriter is Rachel Smith who has a degree in Performing Arts and has performed at the Royal Albert Hall. Everything they do at the Rainbow Factory is of brilliant quality and this won’t be an exception.
Tickets are £6 each for both adults and children over 1 year old (under 1’s are free!) and the show lasts about 40 minutes. The Gingerbread Cafe will be open before every performance for you to purchase drinks and treats (always good for a bit of bribery!) but you have to be quick to book as certain shows are sold out already!!

FULL DISCLOSURE: I have received 2 tickets for this show, but you can see in my other Rainbow Factory posts here (https://leedsdad.com/tag/rainbow-factory/) that I am totally in love with the place!!
