Sasi Strallen will follow in the foot-steps of her theatrical relatives this Christmas, playing the title role in The Wyvern Theatre’s hilarious pantomime Cinderella.

Her aunty Bonnie Langford, the much-loved English actress, dancer and entertainer, appeared as Cinderella in 1984 at The New Wimbledon Theatre. Both parents, Cherida and Sandy, performed in the original London production of Cats. Older sisters Scarlett, Summer and Zizi are recognised musical theatre stars on both West End and Broadway stages having performed in The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Top Hat, Dirty Dancing and Rock of Ages between them. Now, it is Sasi’s turn to step into the spotlight, and promises to bring first-class musicality to The Wyvern’s pantomime. Cinderella is the most magical story of them all and this year’s production boasts stunning sets, sensational costumes and real-life ponies.

The cast also includes comedy legend Keith Chegwin, as Buttons and The Wyvern Theatre’s traditional pantomime promises to be the perfect festive treat for all the family.

Cinderella runs from Saturday 10 December to Sunday 8 January.
