The 2020 Panto and cast at Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre has been postponed.
Produced by Qdos Entertainment, this year’s show was set to be Cinderella. It has now been postponed to 2021/2022 with exact new dates to be confirmed.
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 always a star cast will be bringing the story to life who will return for 2021.
Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood will appear as the Wicked Stepmother while former Strictly finalist Debbie McGee plays the Fairy Godmother.
Joining them will be the legendary Richard Cadell & Sooty. Sooty will play himself with Richard Cadell as his best friend Buttons.
Sooty was unavailable for comment but speaking about their casting Richard Cadell said: “Sooty is beside himself at the prospect of starring in Cinderella in Southampton, and I’m really excited too. Debbie and I have worked together before and became great friends and we’re looking forward to working with Craig Revel Horwood again.
“Last year we appeared together on Strictly as guests but Sooty didn’t dance – he hasn’t really got the legs for it.”
Cinderella will play at Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre in Christmas 2021.
