Reviews:

"Candice MacAllister’s excellent designs give the production a polished, highly attractive look. Vivid reds, green and purples link the storybook scenic design with the costumes of the wicked stepmother and daughters. With the help of the golden-winged Fairy Godmother, Cendrillon changes from humble rags to a lovely flowing gown of baby blue. Prince Charming is equally smartly attired in cream frock coat and regal blue sash." - Simon Parish, Man in Chair

"Much of the slickness of this production was facilitated by MacAllister’s attractive sets. Eight panels featuring colourful leadlight designs were wheeled around with remarkable efficiency to create Cinderella’s home, the palace and the forest. Along with the elaborate eighteenth century costume they were a source of enjoyable visual stimulation for the young audience." Heather Leviston, Classic Melbourne
