Cinderella at the Theatre Royal St Helens-13th Jan 2013
Prepare your little pumpkins for this year’s festive treat as Regal Entertainment brings the spectacular star studded Christmas pantomime Cinderella, the original rags- to- riches fairy tale with a unique St Helens twist.
Cinderella (Juice FM’s Leanne Campbell) dreams of escaping the life she has fallen into, and with the help of her fairy godmother (Tina Malone from Channel 4’s Shameless) the cartridge -crafting fairy certainly gets her on her way.
As she slips the glass slipper on in front of the dashing James Ward as Prince Charming the evil dastardly ugly stepsisters Si Foster and Marc Lawlor give us a laugh for our money, but the night goes to Master of Illusions Richard De Vere as Dandini for point scoring laughter points all the way!
We all know the storyline but the jokes, songs and rapturous flatulence dance from Dandini when he takes the wrong potion will have you rollicking in the aisles along with the “12 days of Christmas” sung to… five toilet rolls, six pairs of knickers…..you got the idea….
The show packs a punch with real life Shetland ponies, dogs and fabulous costumes with bucket loads of panto magic.
So for hilarious knock-out comedy, bawdy slapstick, and lots of giggles then this one will be a treat you and your pumpkins don’t want to miss!
Make this a must before the school hol’s finish by taking gandma, grandad and all the family to one of the norths most entertaining pantos.
