This classic story of rags to riches was first performed by the Hemyock Singers in 2000. Nothing can compare with being given a favoured seat at a show you have written yourself, and where real people are breathing life into your characters! Thanks guys, it was really great.
The cast produced a variation on the theme with the addition of “Fairy Timewarp”, who got so confused with bringing in the wrong panto characters that Buttons married Cinderella!
There’s a cast of 10 main characters in the original version, plus the mice of course and assorted townsfolk:
- Her Wicked Stepmother, Gibletta
- Buttons, a Palace Page
- Her ugly sisters Camilla and Priscilla (Milly & Silly)
- Her father, Master N.Peck
- Fairy Godmother
- Dandini, a Palace courtier
- Prince Charming
- The King
