Soho Cinders at Soho Theatre

Welcome back to Access London and Thank You once again for continuing to support Access for All to the Arts. This Summer, Stiles and Drewe's production of Soho Cinders Premieres at the Soho Theatre, located on Dean Street, in the heart of Soho.
"Edgy, fun and deliciously naughty, Soho Cinders celebrates the capital’s most colourful district and is set to get London’s temperature soaring this summer. When impoverished student Robbie becomes romantically involved with engaged Mayoral candidate James Prince, his lap-dancing step-sisters become the least of his problems! James and Robbie’s worlds collide forcing them to fight for their own fairy-tale ending in this hilarious, satirical twist on the classic Cinderella story. The potent mix of politics, sex-scandals and true love come together in this contemporary musical with an infectious score that you’ll be humming long past the stroke of midnight!"
The cast includes Michael Xavier @michaelxavierMX Amy Lennox @misslenn Tom Milner @thomaskmilner Neil McCaul, Suzie Chard, Beverly Rudd @BevRudd Gerard Carey, Raj Ghatak @RajGhatak Jenna Russell, Amanda Posener, Lewis Barnshaw @LewisBarnshaw Vivien Carter, Christopher Doyle, Julian Hoult @JulianHoult23 Lewis Kirk @LewisKirk Joshua Lovell @JoshuaLovell90 Nigel Roche, Philippa Stefani @PhilippaStefani And the voice of Stephen Fry @stephenfry
"Bang in the creative heart of London, Soho Theatre is a major new writing theatre and a writers’ development organisation of national significance. With a programme spanning theatre, comedy, cabaret and writers’ events and home to a lively bar, Soho Theatre is one of the most vibrant venues on London’s cultural scene." ACCESS INFORMATION: The Main Theatre has an infra-red system fitted and 5 headsets are available to borrow from the box office. Assistance dogs are allowed into the theatre and auditorium. Alternatively, staff can dog-sit during the performance (a maximum of 2 dogs are allowed per performance). The box office and bar are on the ground floor and have level Access from the street. From here, the other floors are Accessible to wheelchair users and those with mobility difficulties by lift. The lift can accommodate wheelchairs, scooters should be left in the foyer area. Seating is unreserved for Soho Cinders. However, if you need a wheelchair space or have any other Access requirements, please inform staff when booking tickets and seats/spaces will be reserved for you. There is space to allocate up to 7 wheelchairs in the front row, which is also the most suitable for anyone with impaired mobility. All of the staff are incredibly helpful. There are also Accessible toilets on the ground, 2nd and 3rd floors. Please note that the Soho area does have some issues with dropped kerbs and not all roads have them, so allow some extra time to get to the theatre. If coming from the direction of Shaftesbury Avenue, it is best to stay on the left hand side of Dean Street until opposite the theatre and then cross over just before it. The kerb here isn't completely flat but is still manageable. For more Access information, see the theatre's Access page HERE
