Cinderella - London Old Vic

December 2007 saw the opening of Stephen Fry’s ‘naughty’ but family-friendly adaptation of the pantomime Cinderella. Kite Related Design was commissioned to design and create a pivotal element for the production, namely the magical Pumpkin. The creative brief was challenging; the fabric pumpkin had to fit into an offstage box of miniscule proportions, yet from a small aperture onstage, the pumpkin would inflate and grow into a truly enormous orange vegetable. It did, and with memorable pantomime flourish. Lightweight solutions to heavyweight ideas.
