Come and join us for everyone's favourite rags to riches tale, CINDERELLA!

Poor Cinderella works night and day but dreams of a very different life and with an invitation to the royal ball it looks as if her wish may be granted. Will her Wicked Stepsisters succeed in ruining Cinderella’s dreams of happiness or will her Fairy Godparents and loyal friend Buttons be able to thwart their devilish plans?

Pop on your glad-rags and join us at the ball to find out! Cinderella is the hilarious family pantomime suitable for all ages, with tons of slapstick comedy and stunning musical numbers that you are guaranteed to be singing for days afterwards. The clock is ticking so grab your tickets now to the show that proves that a pair of shoes really can change your life!

A trip to the Pantomime is the perfect family Christmas activity. If you're looking for a good family pantomime in West Yorkshire, Cinderella at the Victoria Theatre is a brilliant panto for all the family to enjoy.

Cast News! Halifax’s favourite Dame, Adam Stafford will return this year as Nurse Brenda Brighouse alongside the hilarious Nathan Morris as Buttons. They will be joined on stage for an extra splash of panto magic from duo Mathew Pomeroy and Natasha Lamb (aka The Conjurors) who will play Cinderella’s Fairy Godparents. With further casting to be announced they will also be joined by a local junior ensemble to bring you all the usual panto fun, frolics and slosh! Kieran Morris will return this year in the role of Prince Charming, ready to woo his Cinderella Emma Kirk, despite the meddling of her wicked stepsisters Tasha Shanade and Siobhan Diffin
