Lowestoft Players’ pantomime starts at Marina Theatre

THE songs have been perfected, the dances rehearsed and the costumes sewn ready for the opening performance of the Lowestoft Players' pantomime Cinderella tomorrow.

The award-winning theatre group is returning to the Marina Theatre and, in true Lowestoft pantomime tradition, it promises a show full of song, dance, spectacle and magic.

Director Stephen Wilson said: 'The Lowestoft Players pantomime is a tradition for many people in the area and Cinderella promises to be our best panto yet. With a magical transformation scene, an Olympic-inspired UV, the hilarious cabaret featuring characters' Buttons and the Ugly Sisters and that awe-inspiring ball gown.'

The family pantomime will be running for nine performances – tomorrow at 2.30pm and 7.30pm, Sunday at 1pm and 5.30pm, Thursday, January 26 at 7.30pm, Friday 27th at 7.30pm, Saturday 28th at 2.30pm and 7.30pm and Sunday 29th at 2.30pm.

The cast, which is made up of 16 company members, eight principals and 14 youngsters in Buttons' gang, will take audiences on a journey starting in Stoneybroke-on-the-Dole, from there whisking them away to castles, ballrooms, graveyards and fairyland, ending up with a very special wedding.
