Pictures show Cinderella production as pantomime season is launched in Aylesbury

A production that was two years in the making

Pantomime season is officially here, the first production of Cinderella took place at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre on Friday December 3.

With brand new songs and a loaded cast including Aylesbury pantomime veterans and children's television stars, this year's production runs until January 2.

The cast is headlined by CBBC presenter Mark Rhodes, while local favouritesAndy Collins and La Voix are once again performing on Aylesbury's famous stage.

Chris Nelson is directing this year's production, while simultaneously performing as an ugly sister alongside Kristopher Milnes.

Completing the line-up is leading lady Gemma Naylor (Nick Jnr’s Go! Go! Go!), her charming Prince, Regan Burke, and Nick Harris, playing Baron Hard-Up in his debut pantomime.

Andy said: "We want to give audiences the ultimate escape and remind them what live theatre is all about. In fact, the team at the Waterside all share this sentiment – from the

moment you walk through the doors the amazing front of house team are there giving a warm welcome, and the back of house technical team put in hours of work perfecting the sound, lighting and making sure the show run smoothly.

"It's one to remember this year for so many reasons, and we’re all buzzing to be back doing what we love."

Last year Aylesbury Waterside Theatre was forced to cancel pantomime season, due to Covid restrictions.
