Cinderella set to dazzle the King's Theatre this winter

The King’s Theatre launched Cinderella in true showbiz style yesterday with a celebratory Royal Wedding.  Cinderella is set to be a must-see this festive season with an all-star cast featuring King’s Theatre favourites.

Karen Dunbar returns to the King’s for her fifth year in panto, reprising her role as Fairy Godmother like no other.  Stand Up and Capital Scotland’s Des Clarke will be Buttons in this his King’s panto debut. Former star of the UK tour of We Will Rock You and runner up in the BBC’s Over the Rainbow Jenny Douglas also makes her panto debut in the title role. And he’s back, where he belongs, Gavin Mitchell is returning to the King’s to reprise his role as one half of that awfy Ugly duo, a role that won him critical acclaim for his performance in 2008.

With a bro-mance set to rival that of TOWIE’s Mark Wright and James Argent, King’s regular Steven McNicoll takes on the role of Dandini while Kieran Brown (who is currently performing in Wicked at the London Apollo) puts the charm into the Prince. Panto stalwart John Ramage returns to play Baron Hardup and we are delighted to welcome on board Gordon Cooper (currently touring in I Dreamed a Dream) as the other stoater of an Ugly Sister.

With over 100 years of Christmas experiences under its belt the King’s Theatre pantomime will be like no other pantomime in the country and once again promises to maintain the traditional family experience and all the elements that go into making this the Godmother of all pantomimes in Scotland.  

So, will Cinderella win the race against time before the man of her dreams puts the wrong foot forward and declares his love to someone else? You’ll have to wait until the clock strikes midnight to find out!
