Cinderella proved to be a massive hit. According to Ipswich Star, the panto was Regent Theatre’s “one of the most successful ever”.
Also the reviews were great. Here’s how Ipswich Star described the experience:
— But within just a few minutes I had been won over. — This production is a classic pantomime – there is nothing radical or unexpected and it is all the better for that. — And several of the gags were laugh out loud funny. — It really is a stellar cast right through with S Club 7’s Hannah Spearritt as the Fairy Godmother. — This is a smashing family outing – and it is not just for the kids. By the end I was even up dancing along myself. Congratulations to everyone involved – and to those who have already got a ticket, you are in for a treat and if you are a Scrooge when you go in you won’t be when you leave.
