Members of Pannal Players are getting into character for their forthcoming production of 'Cinderella'.

The traditional pantomime will begin its four-day run at Pannal Village Hall during February half-term.

Written and directed by Clive Kirkham, it sees the return of former Mayor of Harrogate, Michael Newby, appearing as one of the ugly stepsisters, alongside Pannal Players regular Harvey Pennell.

The cast members are inviting their audiences to join them in the lesser-known county of Burnbridgeshire to follow the fortunes of Cinderella.

Will poor Cinders get to marry her Prince Charming or will her odious sisters, Diptheria and Malaria, get there first?

Luckily, her kind Fairy Godmother, trusty cat Lolly and cheeky mice are there to get her to the ball and make her dreams come true.

In true panto tradition, the production promises a riot of colour, singing, dance and double entendres.

The antics of the cheese-obsessed mice, played by the younger cast members, and upbeat musical numbers, ranging from 70s disco to modern funk, guarantee lots of audience interaction.

Performances will run each evening at 7.30pm, from Wednesday 22 to Saturday 25 February, with a Saturday matinee performance at 2.30 pm at Pannal Village Hall.

Tickets are available online at www.jumblebee.co.uk/pannalplayerscinderella or from Pannal Post Office and cost £7 for adults and £3 for primary school-aged children.

All proceeds will go to local charities supporting families affected by cancer.
