We are back with another charming pantomime for 2019!
After its second record-breaking year, the Mercury panto has been supersized to fill our new pop-up performance space. Which can only mean more glitter, glamour, songs and seats at our stunning new Abbey Field location!
You are cordially invited to the ball of the year with Cinderella, the ultimate rags-to-riches tale.
Poor Cinderella spends her days cleaning, cooking and tidying for her rotten step-sisters. That is until one day the Prince decides to host an extravagant ball to find his princess and insists that every eligible lady should attend. Little does Cinderella know, life is about to turn itself upside down and an exciting adventure awaits.
Will Cinderella escape her daily chores? Will the Prince find his happy ever after? Will the Sisters ever stop their incessant whining? Cinderella is the perfect festive fix for the whole family to enjoy and will leave you singing all the way home – just don’t leave your slippers behind!
