Cinderella Class Play or Assembly for Key Stage One
Cinderella Class Play or Assembly for Key Stage One. This play is full of fun – even when things don’t go quite according to plan!
Cast of 30 – can be easily adapted up or down. Duration – around 10 – 15 minutes including music suggestions
This play includes a section at the beginning on ‘Shoes’ – which could be used if the class are doing a project on, for example, ‘What We Wear’. If this is not the case, it can easily be omitted – though it’s quite fun seeing what favourite shoes children have!
Cinderella Class Play or Assembly for Key Stage One Sample Text:
Music 2: Magic – Pilot
(Enter Fairy Godmother)
Fairy Godmother: (Swishing her wand) Oh dear! No need for tears, Cinderella! I will get you to the ball!
Cinderella: But how?
(Fairy Godmother swishes her wand. There is silence, and nothing happens)
(Fairy Godmother ‘tuts’, shaking her head, and walks over to the sound technician, has a word and then returns to centre stage)
Fairy Godmother: Let’s try that again!
(Fairy Godmother swishes her wand and this time there is music, Magic – Pilot; after which six white horses, coachman and six footmen appear)
Music 3: Magic – Pilot
(Enter six white horses, coachman and six footmen)
Cinderella: (Gasping) Amazing!
Narrator: (Looking at script) Wait a minute! What about the six mice, the rat and six lizards?
Fairy Godmother: (Pulling a face) Ooh! No thank you! I always skip that bit. I don’t like rodents and reptiles!
Cinderella: But I can’t go to the ball in these rags?
Fairy Godmother: (Tutting) Give me a minute!
Music 4: Magic – Pilot
Fairy Godmother: (Glaring at sound technician) I have to swish my wand first, remember!
(Fairy Godmother swishes wand)
Music 5: Magic – Pilot
(Cinderella rushes off stage, makes a quick costume change and reappears as a princess)

These ‘alternative’ scripts come with synopsis, teaching input, discussion points and suggestions for further activities – and offer a rather different version of events!
- Snow White and the 22 Dwarfs – as assembly/class play (cast of 30) and as pantomime (cast of 30 or 60)
- Sleeping Beauty (cast of 30) – the importance of saying thank you
- Cinderella (cast of 30) – understanding ourselves a little better – not taking things like jealousy out on others; recognising how we feel and doing something positive about.
These last two assemblies/class plays have a strong PSHE element i.e. delivering a message of how we can try to improve ourselves. This is also true of the ‘cast of 6’ scripts, particularly the Cinderella one which has a strong message re: feeling good about yourself (inside and out).
These and many more alternative scripts (including other fairy stories such as Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland, Classic Poems, Just So Stories and Shakespeare scripts) can be found in the Literature section.
