Cinderella is considered to be the number one pantomime and in January MADAOS present their version of the family favourite.

From January 2 to 4 at the Community Centre in Station Road, March, audiences will be whisked off to the world of princes, ugly sisters, fairy godmothers, kings, queens and of course Cinderella.

Triple award-winning MADAOS, flushed with success from their production of “Footloose,” made the decision to produce this original version of the much-loved tale for the first time in the society’s 55 year history.

Rachael Forbes is Cinderella, Eleanor Pettet is Prince Charming and the Ugly Sisters are Derek Wisbey and Alex McAdam.

The show is an original script by the director’s father, Bernard Tinker, and was first performed 30 years ago. It has been updated and some new scenes and musical numbers have been added but Cinderella is a family favourite for a reason and the story is still one that children from all eras will enjoy.

The director is Paul Tinker.

MADAOS needs the support of the local community to put pantomime back on the map in March so book your seat now.
