Cinderella at the Everyman Theatre
PUBLISHED: 11:18 01 October 2015
Polish your pumpkins, grab your glass slippers and dust off your ball gowns. The Everyman’s annual, family-friendly pantomime is back – bigger, better and funnier than ever and featuring the return of Tweedy and William Elliott as Cinderella’s mother, Baroness Hardup.
From the creative team which brought you last year’s record-breaking show, this year it’s the original rags to riches story and everyone’s favourite panto, Cinderella. Will Cinders, played by Ruth Betteridge, get to the Ball, will she find her Prince Charming or will the wicked stepsisters win the day?
This most popular of all Christmas pantos is packed full of laughs, magic and music with plenty of thrills, spills, wicked tricks, fantastic sets and fabulous costumes.
Geoffrey Rowe, Chief Executive of the Everyman Theatre commented: “Expect to see many of your favourite panto elements, including the hilarious antics of Tweedy the Clown and of course a thigh-slapping principal boy and our regular dame. But in a break from tradition, this year we have wicked, spiteful stepsisters, rather than ugly sisters. These roles (usually played by men) will instead be played by two very glamorous actresses (Wendy Abrahams and Kerry Whiteside). We have many familiar faces but some new ones too and we welcome back to the Everyman Theatre, Gloucester-based Upstage Designs, who have designed many productions at the Everyman, most recently Cider with Rosie, The Glass Menagerie and last year’s Will Harvey’s War.”
So the scene is set, come and have a ball with us and don’t forget to get your tickets before the clock strikes twelve!
