Cinderella is my third annual pantomime in the Eastbourne Devonshire Park and probably one of the funniest I’ve seen yet.
The stand out moment is the glittering carriage being pulled by a magnificent flying horse but as usual with Eastbourne the rest of the staging is top notch. Writer and director Chris Jordan strikes a masterful balance between the child friendly jokes and the knowingly adult winks and at times sales about as close as you can get. And yup predictably you get numbers from both The Greatest Showman and that Baby Shark song.
Regulars include comedian Tucker stars as Buttons with his usual foil, pantomime dame Martyn Knight, as one of the Ugly Sisters. Joining them is Scott St.Martyn as the second Ugly Sister, Hilary O’Neil as Fairy Godmother, Graham James as Baron Hardup, Katherine Glover as Prince Charming and Laura Baldwin as Cinderella. But never doubt that those in the know are hear only (well mostly) to see Tucker and Knight who once again steal the show.
In short this is yet another must see – full of jokes, humour and heart.
Cinderella is currently performing at the Devonshire Park Theatre in Eastbourne from the 7th December 2018 to the 13th January 2019
