PANTO king Kenneth Alan Taylor returns to Nottingham Playhouse from Friday, November 25, with Cinderella, his 28th consecutive festive production at the venue.

Cinderella, directed and written by Kenneth Alan Taylor, runs until January 14 and features not one, not two, but three of the most horrible dames in the land.

Back for their latest appearances at the venue are Jeffrey Longmore as Dowager Duchess Devilla, John Elkington and Anthony Hoggard as Ugly Sister Bella and Donna, plus Rebecca Little as Dandini and Danielle Corlass as Cinderella.

The legendary Kenneth Alan Taylor has written and directed another sure fire hit in his version of the world famous Cinderella. Featuring not one, not two, but three of the most horrible dames in the land, Cinderella welcomes back Jeffrey Longmore as Dowager Duchess Devilla, John Elkington and Anthony Hoggard as Ugly Sisters Bella and Donna, Rebecca Little as Dandini and Danielle Corlass as Cinderella.

With sparkling song and dance routines, dazzling costumes and lashings of glitter, Cinderella proves that dreams really can come true for a beautiful yet lowly servant girl.

Doomed to drudgery by her vicious stepsisters, Cinderella can only dream of escape and romance. Enter a glamorous Fairy Godmother armed with a pumpkin and a touch of magic to whisk Cinders from pantry to party.

But with her sisters digging their ugly heels in, it’s not an easy ride to Happy Ever After.

Bucking the trend, the Playhouse is proud to be one of the few remaining regional theatres to produce its own traditional Christmas show.

In addition to the continued longevity of Kenneth Alan Taylor’s association with the theatre, another landmark occasion takes place on January 13 when John Elkington’s 1,000th performance in a Nottingham Playhouse pantomime is due to take place.

Tickets to see Nottingham Playhouse’s production of Cinderella cost £18-£22 (£9 for schools, £25 for the last night).
