Panto stars raring to go

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

THIS year’s sparkling pan­tomime at Ayles­bury Wa­ter­side is Cin­derella, star­ring Suzanne Shaw as Fairy God­mother and Rus­sell Grant re­turn­ing as Baron Hardup.

They are joined by Ayles­bury’s Andy Collins as But­tons, Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent semi-fi­nal­ist An­drew Der­byshire as Prince Charm­ing and singer/song­writer Holly Brewer in the ti­tle role.

Rus­sell says: “Re­turn­ing to Ayles­bury is like Christ­mas has come early!

had such a fab­u­lous time in Peter Pan two years ago that when I was of­fered the chance to re­turn, I jumped at it. The town’s great, the the­atre is gor­geous and the au­di­ences were in a league of their own – a real blast to play to. I can’t wait!”

Back on a mis­sion to get au­di­ences rolling around the aisles is Andy, in his third panto in his home town.

Holly is also ex­cited to be re­turn­ing to Ayles­bury, where she played the role of Sleep­ing Beauty last year.

Hav­ing spent a lot of time in the stu­dio lately, Holly is keen to be back on stage per­form­ing to live au­di­ences.

“Play­ing the role of Cin­derella

Iis ev­ery lit­tle girl’s dream and I can­not wait,” she says.

With glit­ter­ing cos­tumes, bags of au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion and ponies (yes, real ones), this sparkling rags to riches story sees Cin­ders trans­formed from a maid to the belle of the ball.

The pan­tomime runs from Fri­day, De­cem­ber 12 un­til Sun­day, Jan­uary 4.
