Last year, with hundreds of pantomimes cancelled and theatres across the country closed, ‘Blue Peter’ legend Peter Duncan filmed an interactive version of Jack and the Beanstalk in his own giant back garden – starring as Dame Trott as well as co-directing.
Intended to be streamed by families at home over Christmas, it was snapped up by two major UK cinemas chains and even had a glittering VIP premiere.
Jack and the Beanstalk was such a global success that Peter is back behind the cameras and co-directing Cinderella for streaming and cinema release – and he’s in drag again, playing one of the Ugly Sisters!
Peter is back in 2021 with Cinderella, featuring an even bigger performance, even more boos, cheers, ‘he’s behind you’s, a sing-a-long song and all the classic panto antics that we love.
Principal photography is now underway at locations across London and Hampshire. Interactive Cinderella will be making her debut this Christmas both online and in UK cinemas.
Cast: Peter Duncan (Billie), Ian Talbot (Baron Hardup), Sam Ebenezer (Prince Charming), Sarah Moss (Fairy Godmother), Lucy-Jane Qunlan (Cinderella), Henry Roadnight (Buttons), Adam Price (Ariana), Miguel Angel (Dandini), Nicola Blackman (Mistress of Ceremonies) .
Ensemble: Daisy English, Hannah Everest, Emily Galvin, Morgan Wilcox, Charlie Booker, George Littel, Ruaridh McDonald, Ben Westhead.
Just like last year, the show will also be available to schools, Scouts & Guide groups, community groups and care homes at special rates.
