With the Cinderella tour now over, the sets, props and costumes have been put into storage. This gave us a chance to grab you a close-up of a prop that will until now only have been seen from afar: the letter that Cinderella’s stepmother and stepsisters receive inviting them to the Prince’s ball!

The original design for the invitation was composed and hand-painted by John Macfarlane, and from this master copy duplicates were made for the various performances throughout the tour.
