Polish your glass slippers, dust off your carriage and prepare for midnight as Bishopstoke Players present the Fairy Godmother of all pantomimes, “Cinderella”!
While poor, downtrodden Cinderella is being bullied and bossed around by her cruel stepmother and ugly stepsisters, Prince Charming has left to travel the world, and Pantomania is now governed by the selfish Duke of Verruca. However, when the Prince returns to take on his duty as king, the duke refuses to relinquish power. Luckily, faithful Buttons and his friend Kathy are around to work wonders, with of course the magical help of the Fairy Godmother.
Will Cinderella make it to the ball and back again before midnight? Will the glass slipper fit? And will Cinderella live happily ever after with her handsome Prince Charming?
This popular fairy tale has been brought to a new, magical life by that master writer of pantomime, Paul Reakes, in a traditional family panto filled with lots of laughter and plenty of traditional audience participation.
“Cinderella” is coming to Bishopstoke Memorial Hall from Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th January 2020 at 7.30pm, with a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday 25th.
