Stars Shine at Plymouth's Panto LaunchDate: 14 September 2011
The stars of the Theatre Royal’s spectacular family pantomime, Julian Clary and Keith Harris, along with Hannah Nicholas brought a little piece of early Christmas cheer to Plymouth yesterday as they officially launched Devon’s biggest Christmas show, Cinderella!
Julian Clary is one of the country’s most recognisable entertainers. During his career he has turned his hand to comedy, acting, presenting, writing and he even performed as a novice dancer on Strictly Come Dancing, where he reached the final. As well as his autobiography, Julian has written two novels and has just completed a national tour of his one man show. Julian, who will be playing the role of Prince Charming's servant Dandini, has appeared in numerous record-breaking pantomimes around the UK.
Keith Harris, who plays Buttons, together with his creations, Orville and Cuddles, has starred in every major theatre throughout the UK, including two pantomime seasons at the London Palladium and at the Dominion Theatre. The Theatre Royal’s production of Cinderella marks Keith’s 43rd pantomime but the first when Orville’s Christmas wish to finally fly comes true…..…!
“We are delighted to have such a superb cast for this year’s Theatre Royal pantomime,” says Jonathan Kiley, Executive Producer of Cinderella. “This production has got something for everyone including an abundance of laughs, sensational musical numbers and fabulous sets and costumes. Plymouth has never seen a pantomime on this scale before and I am sure the show will delight audiences of all ages.”
Cinderella runs at the Theatre Royal from Friday 16 December 2011 to Saturday 21 January 2012.
