Last night (27th February 2022) at a ceremony at The Prince of Wales theatre in London, Cinderella’s Carrie Hope Fletcher secured a win for Best Performer in a Female Identifying Role in a Musical.
Speaking on the award, Carrie said “I am a stepping stone for more women who want to play princesses one day”, whilst expressing her gratitude to Cinderella writer Emerald Fennell for writing an unconventional Cinderella, and how she hopes to see more casting including bigger women in lead roles.

Reflecting on her win on Instagram later, Carrie elaborated that she was ‘utterly overwhelmed’ and that it was ‘glorious to be back in a room with so many theatrical people after a pandemic’, and to be nominated alongside those she has watched perform in awe as a ‘theatre loving kid’.
Carrie wasn’t the only Cinderella attendee at the prestigious award ceremony, as cast members and fellow nominees Rebecca Trehearn (The Queen) and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt (The Stepmother) also gave an incredible performance of ‘I Know You’ from the show at the awards.
