The action is set in and around a village called Turnbottom Round in the Kingdom of Harmonia.

 

When the palace announces they are going to hold a ball in honour of Prince Charming, there is great excitement at Hardup Hotel. The Baroness wants one of her two daughters, the outrageous sisters Hilaria and Hysterium, to catch the Prince’s eye and become his betrothed. Her stepdaughter, Cinderella, is also desperate to attend so she can escape the drudgery of her life for just one night.

 

Wicked to her core, Baroness Hardup forbids Cinderella from going, and her father is too preoccupied hiding from the Broker’s men to even notice. However, with the help of her Fairy Godmother and her best friend, Buttons, Cinderella shall go to the ball. With six white mice, two frogs, a pumpkin and a liberal sprinkling of magic, Cinderella soon finds herself arriving at the palace in style. But will she get to dance with the Prince before the stroke of midnight?
