Cinderella – Panto at Basildon’s Towngate

21st October 2014
Posted by Ros Connors

Enchanted pumpkins, sparkling glass slippers, a pair of ugly sisters and a handsome prince can only mean one thing!

As time is against her, will or won’t Cinderella make it to the ball in time?
“Oh yes she will —- Oh no she won’t” and with a slap of my thigh the magic starts once more at Basildon’s Towngate Theatre: the magic of live theatre.

Join Cinderella and her fairy godmother in this year’s spectacular Christmas pantomime at the Towngate in Basildon.  Simon Fielding who is the director of this year’s pantomime is returning to the Towngate Theatre and will also star as ‘Buttons’. He says:

“The cast and I are so excited about this year’s panto, so get ready boys and girls for an amazing magical tale which will be full of wonderful surprises, favourite songs and some fun characters.

“We can’t wait to see you all again this festive season so getting booking.”IMG_0852

Sprinkled with Towngate panto magic, Cinderella which is one of the world’s greatest fairy tales and most loved children’s stories, is going to feature a mix of fun characters and favourite songs which will be enjoyed by all the family.

Book your seats early before they sell out, otherwise not even your Fairy Godmother will be able to magic you a ticket for Basildon’s biggest pantomime.

Cinderella runs from Wednesday 3 December 2014 to Sunday 4 January 2015 at the Towngate Theatre, St Martin’s Square Basildon, Essex SS14 1DL.
