This year's cast

Mark should be comfortable acting in front of audiences of all ages. His mischievous CBBC show Sam & Mark’s Big Friday Wind Up has won a BAFTA. He's been performing in front of crowds for years, his rise to prominence came almost 20 years ago when he was runner-up in the second season of Pop Idol back in 2003.

Andy is a homegrown entertainer who hails from Aylesbury and a veteran of the local pantaomime scene.

Cinderella will be performed at the Waterside Theatre throughout the festive season.

Performances have been booked from December 3 through to 2022, with the final curtain being drawn on January 2.
