Cinderella brings a pantomime revival


POPULAR local drama group the Bridgewater Players are preparing for their February production of “Cinderella” – their first pantomime for four years.
Sticking closely to the traditional tale of ugly sisters and handsome prince, the panto nevertheless has an original script by the late Ian Hornby, former chairman of the society and a playwright with more than 50 plays to his name.
The last time the group attempted a panto, in 2014, it had to be cancelled because of damage to the roof of their venue, Thelwall Parish Hall.
But with the hall now refurbished and a cast including new, enthusiastic members, they are confident “Cinderella” will provide plenty of laughs and excellent entertainment.
Cinderella, of course, will have to suffer the mistreatment of the ugly sisters, but she will have the help of the faithful Buttons, the Fairy Godmother and, of course, the Prince.
Interwoven throughout are the comedy antics of two shelf elves, a miserable, lazy gnome and a silly little bumble bee, all eager to Cinders in her quest to become the Prince’s bride and put the ugly sisters in their place.
Tickets can be purchased from bwplayers.co.uk, by calling chairman Andy Rushman on 01925 755 846, emailing Bridgewaterplayers@gmail.com or from Thelwall post office.
On the Friday night there will be a raffle with all monies raised going to a charity chosen by director Amy Cook.
