A spokesman for the theatre said: "This Christmas season there's something magic in the air at Buxton Opera House, as we present the most popular rags-to-riches story of all time.

"Grab a seat on your very own magic coach and celebrate with Cinders and her friends, including CBeebies favourite Phil Gallagher as Buttons, popular singing star Denise Nolan as the Fairy Godmother and Ciara Janson, who plays Nicole Owen in Hollyoaks. She is our as Cinderella.

"We promise fast-moving comedy action, toe-tapping pop songs, dazzling dance routines and a generous sprinkle of fairy dust make Cinderella the perfect seasonal treat for the whole family."

The show began its run right through until January 3, with matinee performances each day, including today, tomrorrow and New Year's Day. To find out about tickets, call the opera house on 0845 127 2190 or visit
