Casting has been announced for this year’s Cinderella panto at Hartford’s The Grange Theatre.
Cinderella will run from Saturday, 11 December to Sunday, 2 January 2022 produced by KD Theatre Productions in association with The Grange Theatre.
Welcoming audiences back into The Grange for panto are Northwich favourites Rob Stevens as Fairy Godmother and Oliver Scott as Buttons.
Joining them are Hannah Ponting as Cinderella, Grace Thorne & Molly Angus as the Stepsisters and Joshua Edwards as Prince Charming.
The beautiful Cinderella longs for a happier life away from her wicked Stepsisters. Cinderella’s loveable friend Buttons tries to keep Cinder’s spirits up with his hilarious antics but it’s only when the dashing Prince Charming decides to hold a ball to find his future wife, that Cinderella feels a glimmer of hope!
Will her wicked stepsisters scupper her happiness forever or with a little help from her only friend Buttons and a fabulous Fairy Godmother, can she make it to the Royal Ball and find her Prince Charming?
Polish off your pumpkins, dust off your gowns and get ready for the pantomime of the year!
Tickets are available to buy online now from thegrangetheatre.com.
Oliver Scott, who also directs, said: “I just can’t wait for Christmas, not only to return to my second home at The Grange, but to also see the great people of Cheshire! This year is going to be an extra celebration. A real celebration for everyone. Not only am I directing the most magical panto of them all, but I’m also playing my dream role of Buttons!”
Paul Edwards, at The Grange Theatre added: “It is amazing to be working with KD Theatre again creating the magic of Pantomime for our audiences. It has been a challenging time for all and a family visit to the pantomime will be even more meaningful and special this year.
“We will provide you with a safe, welcoming environment to watch this show with your loved ones. It is going to be a ball! Don’t miss out as many have already booked their tickets.
“This is our 12th professional pantomime at The Grange Theatre and we simply cannot wait. Come to the biggest ball in town wrapped in glitter, laughter and more. Let’s make sure all the past struggles of time away from loved ones are truly behind you….oh yes they are!”
