Tickets are now on sale for this year’s family pantomime - Cinderella - at the Cambridge Arts Theatre.
The production, which runs from December 3 to January 17, 2016, is packed with new faces from top West End productions and beyond.
Suzie Mathers stars as Cinderella, fresh from her widely acclaimed lead roles as Glinda in the Australasian production of Wicked and Sophie in the tenth anniversary tour of Mamma Mia.
Steven Butler (The Wizard of Oz, London Palladium) brings the silliness and laughter as Cinderella’s best friend Buttons, while Jonathan D Ellis and Daniel Goode get nasty as the Ugly Sisters. Sprinkling some magical pantomime fairy dust as the Fairy Godmother is Rosemary Ashe, whose extensive West End credits include the original production of The Phantom of the Opera, Mary Poppins and Les Misérables. She
originated the title role of Viv in Spend Spend Spend for its premiere at the West Yorkshire Playhouse and was nominated for an Olivier award for the role of Felicia Gabriel in the world premiere production of The Witches of Eastwick.
Completing the cast are Richard Earl (Aladdin, Robin Hood) as Baron Hardup, Laura Darton (Dreamboats and Miniskirts) as Prince Charming and Jennifer Potts (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) as the Prince’s trusty sidekick Dandini. Performing alongside the cast are an all-singing, all-dancing ensemble of professional dancers and 20 talented local children aged 9 – 13 as the panto babes.
Cinderella opens on Thursday, December 3, 2015 and runs until Sunday, January 17, 2016. For information about performance times and ticket
