THE Hexagon will be transformed into a winter wonderland next week when a team of 25 Russian ice-skating stars arrive for a five-night run of Cinderella On Ice.
The Wild Rose company also has a crew of 14, who construct a real-life ice rink on stage wherever they go.
The award-winning show, which breathes new life into the traditional fairy story, is a combination of ice dance and ballet.
And the cast is made up of some of the top ice-skaters in the world — with all the performers having competed in national competitions in Russia, and many of them in the Olympics, World Championships and European Championships.
The company has toured non-stop for three years, and played in Oxford’s New Theatre before Christmas where it received rave reviews in the Oxford-based newspapers.
Cinderella On Ice is at the Hexagon from Wednesday, January 16 to Sunday, January 20. Box office 0118 960 6060 or go to www.readingarts.com
