Based on the age-old tale of Cinderella, our own artistic director, Jeremy Webb has created an original holiday musical comedy that’s fun for the whole family based on British pantomime.
“I wanted to bring the tradition of the British panto to Neptune, but at the same time be mindful that not everyone knows what a ‘pantomime’ is,” says writer/director Webb. “There’s a gigantic tradition of the holiday panto in the UK. With whole families going year after year and seeing the show. Each year it’s a different tale.”
The panto takes a well-known story, such as a fairy tale, and infuses it with extravagant characters, dancing, singing, comedic moments and encourages the audience to get in on the fun.
Cinderella tells the story of a young woman who longs for a better life away from her menacing stepsisters. To help make her dreams come true, an amateur fairy godmother appears and grants her wish to attend the royal ball. Cinderella is then in a race against the clock to try and find her prince before the spell is broken at the stroke of midnight.
Packed full of toe-tapping songs, belly-laughs and fun surprises, this show leaves you with the magical feeling of love and joy.
Featuring Martha Irving as Fairy Godmother
