New Adventures have today announced casting for the UK tour of Matthew Bourne’s production of Cinderella, opening at Sadler’s Wells on the 9th December.
The new UK tour of the production will see Cordelia Braithwaite and Ashley Shaw, fresh from their role of Victoria Page in the Red Shoes, sharing the role of Cinderella.
Meanwhile, Will Bozier, Andrew Monaghan and Dominic North will be playing Cinderella’s heroic Pilot Harry. The Angel (Cinderella’s ‘Fairy GodFather’) will be danced by Paris Fitzpatrick and Liam Mower.Sybil, Cinderella’s Step-Mother, is performed by Madelaine Brennan, Michela Meazza (London only) and Anjali Mehra.Robert. Cinderella’s Father is performed by Alan Vincent and Dan Wright.
The cast is completed by Steph Billers; João Carolino; Reece Causton; Jackson Fisch; Glenn Graham; Sophia Hurdley; Jack Jones; Nicole Kabera; Kate Lyons; Jamie McDonald; Stephen Murray (Former Central School of Ballet/New Adventures Student Associate), Danny Reubens; Katie Webb and Seren Williams.
Matthew Bourne’s interpretation of the classic fairy tale, has, at its heart, a true war-time romance. A chance meeting results in a magical night for Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.
The production features Lez Brotherston’s sumptuous costumes and sets, Neil Austin’s lighting design and sound by Paul Groothuis.
