Casting and creatives have been announced for Cinderella at The Borough Hall, Godalming.
The pantomime production from Wysch Productions will run at the venue from 11 to 26 December 2021.
Stephanie Costi, who is currently in her final year of training at Guildford School of Acting, is delighted that she shall go to the ball as Godalming’s very own Cinderella. Her fabulous sparkly Fairy Godmother will be played by Emily Cochrane.
This traditional family Panto wouldn’t be complete without the Ugly Sisters to make Cinderella’s life a misery, and Josh Bamling as Astra and Christian Andrews as Zeneca will make a formidable and hilarious pair. Vying for Cinderella’s attention, will be Joseph Foyster as the suave Prince Charming with Clark James returning to Godalming Panto, this time as the ever affable and funny Buttons.
Completing the cast is Laura Kent as Ensemble/Swing.
Cinderella has been written Andrew Pollard who has appeared in Panto every year for the past 20 years and written, directed and played Dame in 14 Pantomimes for Greenwich Theatre. The show is co-directed by Jo Kirkland, co-directed and choreographed by Charlotte Wyschna, cast by Denise Silvey and produced by Nick Wyschna.
Tickets are available online now from www.GodalmingPanto.com.
Producer Nick Wyschna said: “Cinderella is cast and we will be heading into rehearsals next month. This cast is stupendous and I couldn’t be more excited. This is going to be a magical show, full of tradition, laughter, glitz, stonking dance routines and soaring musical numbers.
“The set is bigger and better than ever before, we can’t wait to transform the Borough Hall and invite you all in to the ball!”
Meanwhile even more theatre-goers shall go to the ball as Wysch Productions is again offering a Pay What You Can scheme to help those who would not otherwise be able to attend a Pantomime this year due to financial restraints.
Wyschna added: “I’m over the moon to be able to bring back our Pay What You Can tickets. We are a professional Pantomime for the community of Godalming and I believe everyone should have the chance to see Cinderella. Just send us a message via our website (www.godalmingpanto.com) or social media, or telephone the Box Office on 01483 361101, and we’ll sort your tickets out for you!”
