CINDERELLA is the most magical fairytale of all time and is making a glittering arrival at the Thameside Theatre, Orsett Road, Grays for this year’s Christmas Pantomime 2012/13. Cinderella will enchant audiences of all ages with this classic love story suitable for the whole family. The Pantomime will open on Friday 7 December 2012 and run until Sunday 6 January 2013.
Following last year’s amazing success with Aladdin, Polka Dot Pantomimes will once again be producing Essex’s best value Pantomime that will combine a West End cast, spectacular scenery, glittering costumes and some truly magical surprises. Leading the cast will be gorgeous Gemma Bissix who has starred in Eastenders, Hollyoaks and Dancing on Ice. Gemma will be waving her magic wand as Fairy Flustered to help make Cinderella’s dreams come true. Chris Simmons will also be starring alongside Gemma and is best known for his role as DC Mickey Webb in The Bill. Chris is an accomplished actor and singer and his East End charm will get everyone laughing as he takes on the role of Buttons. West End star Wain Douglas is back by popular demand as one of the Ugly Sisters after his superb performance as Dame last year in Aladdin.
Cinderella lives with her wicked stepsisters who make her do all the cleaning, mending and cooking! Will Cinderella be rescued by her Prince and be taken away from her lazy family and live happily ever after?
Oh yes she will!
