Have A Ball This Christmas With Cinders

Issue 40

Enchanted Entertainment are back at The Tyne Theatre and Opera House this December (7-30) with another all-star cast for what's set to be the best pantomime on Tyneside yet.

Receiving rave reviews for their first North East panto in 2017 with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, they’re bringing you a fantastic line-up and show for 2018 with the classic rags to riches tale, Cinderella.

The star-studded cast must start with the title role, Cinderella, who is played by local lass Lola Saunders, who appeared on the X Factor and was mentored by fellow-Geordie, Cheryl. Since her TV talent show appearance, Lola has performed at events up and down the country as well as appearing in festivals and recently touring the UK in the musical ‘Save the Last Dance for Me’.

No stranger to talent shows himself is Prince Charming, who’ll be played by another local, Collabro’s Jamie Lambert, from Washington. Collabro won Britain’s Got Talent four years ago and they’ve been around the world performing in some of the most iconic venues since. Jamie will be back on home-soil this December and we’re sure his vocals will be a highlight of the show.

No performance of Cinderella would be complete without a Fairy Godmother and this year, it’ll be none-other than Mauren Nolan; a member of probably one of the most famous girl groups of all time, The Nolans. Maureen has also been touring the UK recently with the hit musicals Blood Brothers and Footloose.

Also in the Cinderella cast are Tracy Beaker Returns and The Dumping Ground star Connor Byrne, who will be playing Baron Hardup and back by popular demand is Newcastle’s favourite Geordie comic, Charlie Richmond as Buttonswhilst there’ll also be some funny antics expected from fellow Geordie, Lewis Denny as Dandini.
