Wysch Productions reveals the talented line-up of performers who have been cast in Surrey’s family Pantomime, Cinderella, playing The Borough Hall, Godalming, from 11 – 26 December 2021.
Stephanie Costi, who is currently in her final year of training at Guildford School of Acting, is delighted that she shall go to the ball as Godalming’s very own Cinderella. Her fabulous sparkly Fairy Godmother will be played by Emily Cochrane. This traditional family Panto wouldn’t be complete without the Ugly Sisters to make Cinderella’s life a misery, and Josh Bamling as Astra and Christian Andrews as Zeneca will make a formidable and hilarious pair. Vying for Cinderella’s attention, will be Joseph Foyster as the suave Prince Charming with Clark James returning to Godalming Panto, this time as the ever affable and funny Buttons. Laura Kent will be joining the cast as Ensemble/Swing.
Script writer Andrew Pollard has a great passion for Pantomime, having appeared in Panto every year for the past 20 years. He has written, directed and played Dame in 14 Pantomimes for Greenwich Theatre. This year will be his 15th. Oh, yes it will! He is also resident Panto writer for the Watford Palace, Queens Theatre, Hornchurch, and the Mercury theatre, Colchester as well as having written numerous Pantomimes for theatres across the country. He has countless other credits to his name for children’s and grown-ups’ shows.
Cinderella is co-directed by Jo Kirkland, co-directed and choreographed by Charlotte Wyschna, cast by Denise Silvey and produced by Nick Wyschna.
Producer Nick Wyschna said: “Cinderella is cast and we will be heading into rehearsals next month. This cast is stupendous and I couldn’t be more excited. This is going to be a magical show, full of tradition, laughter, glitz, stonking dance routines and soaring musical numbers. The set is bigger and better than ever before, we can’t wait to transform the Borough Hall and invite you all in to the ball!”
