The 2022 Panto at Newcastle Theatre Royal has been announced.
Produced by Crossroads Pantomimes, this year’s show will be Cinderella.
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.
As usual a star-studded cast will be bringing the story to life this festive season with X Factor star Joe McElderry leading the company.
Joining him are comedy superstar Danny Adams and panto favourites Clive Webb and Chris Hayward.
Join Cinders as she goes from rags to riches, outwits her very wicked sisters and meets her dashing Prince Charming. The clock is ticking, so book your tickets now!
Producer and Director of Cinderella, Michael Harrison said: “Joe received such a rapturous welcome from our Newcastle Theatre Royal audience last Christmas I just had to invite him back to join Danny, Clive and Chris for Cinderella this year. Joe is the ultimate showman – bringing incredible musical talent and hilarious comedy interaction with Danny to the show. Cinderella, which will feature set and costumes from our London Palladium production, is already shaping up to be our biggest Newcastle Theatre Royal panto to date.”
Chief Executive of Newcastle Theatre Royal, Marianne Locatori added: “Joe was a wonderful addition to an already spectacular cast; he proved to be a real hit with our audiences who were blown away by his stunning vocals and sense of fun and we are delighted that he will be joining us once again for Cinderella.”
Cinderella will be performing at Newcastle Theatre Royal from 29 November 2022 until 15 January 2023.
