All start Cinderella cast get set for curtains up at Epstein Theatre
With just a week to go before the opening of its sparkling Christmas pantomime Cinderella, LHK Productions is busy transforming the Epstein Theatre stage into a magical ballroom!
Producer Lee Kelly is polishing his magic wand ready to reveal his all-star cast who are getting ready to dazzle audiences with their spellbinding production of the greatest rags to riches tale of them all, Cinderella.
Returning to the Epstein Theatre for his fourth festive season, this year Lee’s line-up includes heartthrob Calum Best who makes his panto debut alongside much-loved Merseybeat legend, Beryl Marsden.
This Charming Man, Calum is the son of football legend George Best and is guaranteed to get hearts racing across the region in his role as the dashing Prince Charming.
Meanwhile, Beryl, the godmother of 60’s soul, who was one of the greatest female vocalists of the Merseybeat era and toured with The Beatles, will also be starring in panto for first time as The Fairy Godmother!
The cast also includes Grease Is the Word’s Alison Crawford, Lesley Butler as the Wicked Stepmother and Michael Chapman and Tom Burroughs as the hilarious Ugly Sisters. Lewis Pryor stars as Buttons and Chris Barton plays Prince Charming’s right hand man, Dandini.
Based on the classic fairytale, Cinderella tells the much-loved story of a pretty young girl kept captive by her wicked ugly step-sisters. When Cinders is invited to a magnificent ball at the palace, her two fiendish siblings forbid her to attend.
With a wave of a magic wand, her very own fairy godmother appears to save the day and she is transformed into a beautiful princess. After a magical evening dancing endlessly with Prince Charming, midnight approaches and poor Cinders has to depart before the spell is broken.
With a single glass slipper left behind, will Prince Charming be able to find his princess? Will Cinders escape the clutches of her ugly step-sisters and live happily ever after?
With a live orchestra, real Shetland ponies, lavish sets and exquisite costumes, the audience is in for a real treat this Christmas!
Producer Lee Kelly said:
“I am so excited about our Panto this year, we have a really strong cast and sales already beating last year’s figures, I firmly believe this will be one of our ‘Best’, especially with Calum on board.”
