Full casting has been announced for the New Victoria Theatre’s 2018 pantomime Cinderella, playing at the theatre from the 7th December.
Joining the previously announced Craig Revel Horwood as the Wicked Stepmother, the cast will also include: Phil Butler as Buttons and West End star Sophie Isaacs as Cinderella, who is currently starring in the hit-musical Heathers at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Starring alongside them will be Suzie Chard and Wendy Somerville as Cinderella’s very vicious sisters, Oliver Savile, star of the hit musical Wicked as Prince Charming and Paul Chuckle as Cinderella’s father Baron Hardup.
As well as making his new Victoria Theatre debut, this will be the first pantomime Paul Chuckle will star in following the passing of his brother and co-star Barry earlier this year.
Talking about the news Paul Chuckle said: “I’d like to thank everybody for their amazingly kind outpouring of love and support following the loss of our dear friend and my amazing brother, Barry. Panto was a huge part of our lives for over 50 years and I know Barry would want and expect the show to go on so I’m very happy to be starring in Cinderella in Woking this Christmas alongside our good friend Craig Revel Horwood. The three of us had a fantastic time doing panto together last year and Craig and I are looking forward to going out there, getting started and doing this year’s panto in loving memory of Barry.”
Packed with all of the traditional pantomime ingredients audiences expect, Cinderellafeatures laugh-out-loud comedy, stunning scenery, beautiful costumes and plenty of boos and hisses. Join Cinders as she goes from rags to riches, outwits her very ugly sisters and meets her dashing Prince Charming.
Cinderella will play at the New Victoria Theatre from the 7th December until the 6th January 2019. To book tickets visit: ATG Tickets .
