Have a ball this festive season as the Fairy Godmother of all pantomimes, Cinderella arrives at Richmond Theatre from Friday 3 December 2021 to Sunday 2 January 2022. Leading the cast in his pantomime debut, is the King of Ballroom Anton Du Beke as Buttons who is best known for his role on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
Quick-witted and known for his sartorial style, Anton has become a household name through regular television appearances as a host and guest on primetime television andis one of the most instantly recognisable figures in the world of Ballroom dance today. Anton was most recently announced to be a judge for this year’s Strictly and is now ready to put his dancing skills to the test, at Prince Charming’s Royal Ball.
Packed with all of the traditional pantomime ingredients audiences expect, Cinderella is a laugh-out-loud comedy, with stunning scenery, beautiful costumes and plenty of boos and hisses. Join Cinderella as she goes from rags to riches, outwits her wicked sisters and meets her dashing Prince Charming.
No matter how many years young you are, Cinderella is fun for the entire family, and Richmond Theatre wants everyone to have a magical experience so there is a performance for everyone, including a signed performance on Tuesday 14 December at 7pm, and an audio described performance on Tuesday 16 December at 7pm. There is also a relaxed performance on Tuesday 16 December at 2pm, for those with different sensory needs. Specially adapted, the performance keeps house lights up, allows customers to move around freely and removes any sudden and loud noises, whilst keeping all the pantomime magic audiences except.
After a less-traditional festive season in 2020, be sure not to miss spending an evening at the theatre with your loved ones this time round – it will be a year to remember.
Cinderella is at Richmond Theatre from Friday 3 December 2021 – Sunday 2 July 2022.
