Standby evil laughter, get ready thunder and lighting! Panto time is here again, and in Stoneybroke Hall the wicked Baroness Evilla is forcing poor Cinderella to live an awful life as cleaner, cook, maid and all-round slave. When the Prince of Colchester Castle proclaims his plan to pick a princess at a posho party, Cinders’ ugly step-sisters set out to take his hand in marriage… by force if necessary!
Cinderella’s happiness depends on her best friend Buttons. If Buttons can complete his double totes ridic cray cray mission to see Prince Charming and Cinderella marry, he’ll earn his wings from Fairy Fingringhoe. He’ll then be able to do what he’s always wanted to do – fly!
Can Baroness Evilla be defeated? Does Cinderella’s slipper size up? Will Buttons get those wings? He needs your help to save his best friend, so come along and meet Buttons, Cinderella and the gang at the Mercury Theatre this December!
Mercury favourites Dale Superville (Pie Man, Simple Simon, Wishee Washee in previous pantos) returns as Buttons , alongside Ignatius Anthony and Tim Freeman in this traditional pantomime that’s fun for all ages.
