ALISON CROOSE

Angles Theatre,Wisbech

The classic story was given a refreshing new look with a funky, pink set providing the backdrop for a bright and breezy family show full of fun.

It maintained the best traditions of panto, especially the generous helping of audience participation. There was plenty to shout about - not least the double dose of pantomime dames. In their garish outfits and wigs Kevin Shippey and Emlyn Moment threw themselves into their roles with gusto.

They were the baddies everyone loved to hate, in contrast to the endearing Cinderella (Laura-Jayne Shippey) and Buttons (Karl Brittin). Along with the thigh-slapping Prince Charm-ing (Emma Small) they gave a strong lead to the well-staged song and dance numbers.

The fairy godmother was played by Alison Shippey, whose performance was outstanding, especially in leading the singing.
