The stars of Darlington Civic Theatre’s pantomime made an early visit to the town on Friday, September 11th, 2015 to officially launch the show in true fairytale style.
Ashleigh Butler and her loveable dog Pudsey were joined by Brendan Sheerin and Niki Evans, as they went for a ride in a horse-drawn carriage.
For an added bit of pantomime magic, the Fairy Godmother even made it snow.
Michael Harrison, managing director of Qdos Entertainment (the producers of the show, and executive producer of Cinderella) said “We’re delighted to be bringing the magic of Cinderella to Darlington this Christmas, especially with such a talented cast.
“Ashleigh & Pudsey are perfect for panto and will delight audiences with their fabulous routines. With Brendan’s wonderful personality and sense of humour, Niki’s fabulous voice and Dooby’s legendary disco routines, plus our stunning scenery, music, comedy and dance.”
He added: “Darlington audiences are definitely in for an unmissable treat this Christmas.”
Lynda Winstanley, theatre director, said: “This is such a magical time of year for us – we are delighted to be presenting Cinderella, as our fabulous annual pantomime which is always such a wonderful treat – bringing families into our historic venue for fun and laughter during the festive season.’’
Cinderella runs at Darlington Civic Theatre from Saturday, December 5th, 2015 until Sunday, January 10th, 2016. Tickets are available from the box office on 01325 486555 or by visiting the website.
