The cast of the 2019 panto at The New Theatre in Cardiff has been announced.
Produced by Qdos Entertainment, this year’s panto will be Cinderella.
TV personality and style guru Gok Wan will play the role of The Fairy Gokmother, offering helpful style tips to The Ugly Sisters and creating the most magical ball gown in panto-land for Cinderella!
Gok will be joined by panto dame royalty in the form of returning legend Mike Doyle and the hilariously fabulous Ceri Dupree as The Ugly Sisters, while playing Cinderella’s loveable best friend Buttons will be comedian and magician Phil Butler.
Cinderella tells the story of a young orphaned girl who is put to work by her evil step mother and bullied by her two step-sisters, until a chance encounter with her Fairy Godmother changes everything.
Alongside its fabulous cast, the upcoming production promises laugh-out-loud comedy, stunning scenery and special effects, beautiful costumes and plenty of boos and hisses for all the family to enjoy.
Michael Harrison, managing director of Qdos Entertainment’s pantomime division said: “We are absolutely delighted to have Gok, Mike, Ceri and Phil lead our star casting of this year’s pantomime. All four of them are absolute masters of the art form of panto and audiences are in for a treat to see them in action.”
A spokesperson for the New Theatre said “We’re delighted to have secured Gok Wan to lead a stellar cast for Wales’ biggest pantomime, and with Mike, Ceri and Phil joining forces we just can’t wait to see what magic they conjure up on stage.”
Cinderella plays December 7, 2019 to January 12, 2020 at The New Theatre in Cardiff.
