Cinderella

The countdown to Christmas has officially begun as panto fever hits Sunderland!

Starring I’m a Celebrity and Gogglebox star SCARLETT MOFFATT, who will be stepping into the magical role of the Fairy Godmother.

Joining Scarlett will be the North East’s very own Queen of Mean Miss Rory (aka Dan Cunningham), as the feisty Rorina Hardup (we’ll make sure she minds her Ps and Qs), alongside Duncan Burt as her equally ugly sister Ruby!

Also starring are Nick Jnr’s Gemma Naylor (Go! Go! Go!) as Cinderella, ITV’s Superstars finalist and Sunderland born Jon Moses as the Prince and the hilarious Tom Whalley from Durham returns as Buttons.

So get set to experience the classic tale of Cinderella and join Cinders on a magical adventure as she transforms from rags to riches, outwits her very ugly sisters, plus with the help of her best friend Buttons, a magical Fairy Godmother and a glittering glass slipper, wins the heart of the dashing Prince.

The cast:

Scarlett Moffatt has become a regular on TV screens since making the public laugh with her quick-witted humour on Gogglebox, before capturing our hearts on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, which saw her crowned Queen of the Jungle in 2016. Scarlett is currently the host for I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp on ITV2 and the new Team Captain on CelebAbility also on ITV2. She is currently filming a brand new show forChannel 4 which will air this autumn.

Miss Rory (the comic creation of North East born Dan Cunningham) has appeared at Newcastle cabaret hotspot ‘Boulevard’ as host since 2010, carving a place in the affections of audiences who visit from far and wide. Becoming a household name in the region and beyond, synonymous with glamour, wit and the edge only a lady like Rory can bring! Billed as ‘A Tyneside Institution’ Rory’s razor sharp wit and cutting asides along with hilarious observational comedy have led to numerous sell-out solo shows.

The North East casting theme continues with Tom Whalley, returning to Sunderland Empire after his hilarious comical debut as PC Pong in Aladdin in 2015 and ITV’s Superstars finalist Jon Moses returns home for the festive season. Born and bred in Sunderland, Jon Moses, has performed for millions of viewers on Andrew Lloyd –Webbers ITV’s Superstar search for his leading man, working with Mel C, Amanda Holden, Jason Donovan and Dawn French. His dynamic and powerful voice has taken him onto various leading roles in several national theatre tours. Jon’s recent album ‘Journey’ peaked at a whopping number 5 in the charts!!! Securing him a sell-out solo theatre tour all over the UK and Europe.
