Rehearsals Begin for Hull’s Star-Studded Pantomime



The city centre’s Christmas tree is up, and the streets are filled with lights, which means the festive season can now get into full swing, and rehearsals for Hull’s eagerly awaited Christmas panto have begun!

Hull’s star-studded pantomime rehearsals are well underway for this year’s festive production of Cinderella, which opens at Hull New Theatre on the 6th December.

Playing the role of Cinderella’s Wicked Stepmother will be multi-award winning stage, television, film actress and singer Anita Dobson.

This year’s production also stars; comedy legend Bernie Clifton and former EastEnders bad boy Neil McDermott alongside local West End star Jocasta Almgill, and long-time Hull resident, comedian Martyn James.

So, slip on your glass slippers and head to Hull New Theatre to find your very own princes charming.

Audiences shall go to the ball this Christmas as Cinderella transforms from rags to riches, outwits her Wicked Stepmother and very Ugly Sisters, and with the help of her hilarious friend Buttons, father Baron Hardup and one very magical Fairy Godmother, wins the heart of the dashing Prince Charming.

Cinderella will feature all of the ingredients of the perfect Hull pantomime; a fabulous cast and live orchestra, laugh-out-loud comedy, stunning scenery and special effects, beautiful costumes and plenty of boos and hisses for all the family to enjoy.

This year’s panto will be bigger and better than ever, and will also feature an exciting, eye-popping 3D sequence and real Shetland ponies that will transport Cinderella to the Ball.

Don’t miss your chance to see Cinderella, the Fairy Godmother of all pantomimes.

This year’s star-studded pantomime is sure to sell out quickly, Oh yes it will!

The clock is ticking… Celebrate Christmas with this Pantomime perfect for the whole family.

The show runs from 6th to 30th December, with matinee performances and a Signed Performance on the 12th December.
