Cinderella returns to spread it’s magic to Kent’s Marlowe Theatre for this year’s pantomime, featuring one of the most well-rounded casts of recent history. Phil Gallagher returns with a very sweet performance as Buttons, while Harry Reid‘s Dandini finds his own within the show.

Lloyd Hollett and Ben Roddy are back yet again, stapling themselves as the backbone of the production. Stealing any scene they remotely touch, you’ll be marveling at the jaw-dropping costumes for days after. Their chemistry is something that’s rare to capture and I’m looking forward to seeing them return next year.

There are the questionable moments, including a 90s rap throwback mixed with the dab, but it wouldn’t be a pantomime without this.

The tracklist features a delightful rendition of School of Rock‘s Stick It To The Man and as with many shows up and down the country, a nod to The Greatest Showman. You can also expect the best Isle of Sheppy moment to date, and even delivers a punchline with Fallout 4 (I know, right?).

Cinderella at The Marlowe Theatre is THE pantomime to see. Expect laughs, sing-a-longs and plenty of festive cheer.
