Cinderella – A Traditional British Panto Takes To The Stage At Globus Theatre

KAWARTHA LAKES-Looking for some crazy Christmas fun? Cinderella, a traditional British Panto fits the bill!

In this show, the 16th Panto written by Sarah Quick, you join Cinders, her BFF Buttons, her Fairy Godmother and a host of comedy characters as they join forces against a wicked Wicked Stepmother and two ugly UGLY sisters! As with all traditional British pantomimes, prepare for hilarious, colourful and crazy fun. While the kids will enjoy the action, songs and audience participation, local references and innuendos ensure that adults will LOVE the story just as much, if not more.

A panto is a traditional fairy tale complete with songs, dances, jokes, exaggerated characters and lots of audience participation.

Globus’ yearly Panto is the one opportunity for community actors both young and young at heart to tread the boards with the theatre’s professional company! Many of the cast are enthusiastic participants from Globus’ School of Dramatic Arts who are joined by 6 amazing professional actors: Globus Panto veterans Sarah Quick as the Wicked Stepmother, Kevin Sepaul, and James Barrett as the Ugly Stepsisters; along with emerging artists Jack Copland as Buttons, Sasha Luna as Prince Charming and Rebecca Anne Bloom as Cinderella. 

“I grew up performing in pantomimes in the UK. It was the thing that sparked my love of acting and encouraged me to make theatre my career. In fact, my first professional gig was a panto in London’s West End 25 years ago. When Globus Theatre moved to the Lakeview Arts Barn in 2006 I knew that I wanted to offer the kids in our community the same experience that I had growing up. To see so many on our stage this year is a joy! They do such a great job alongside our professional cast and audiences are going to love the energy, jokes, romance and sheer zaniness. Panto is a great tradition of performance that appeals to every generation of the family – making it the perfect festive trip out! ”  says Sarah Quick, playwright and director
