Reporter: David Chadderton
This year's Everyman rock 'n' roll panto is Cinderella by Liverpool writer Luke Barnes, running from 17 November 2023 to 20 January 2024.
Panto favourite Adam Keast is back for his 21st Everyman show, playing Graham, assistant to glamorous Dame Fairy Godmother Ben Welch. Aminita Francis, who played Cherry Blossom in last year’s Red Riding Hood, is The Queen. The Prince will be Thomas Fabian Parrish, whose theatre credits include Once at the Barn Theatre and several pantos for Watford Palace. Mr Ooglay is played by Zoe West, who was Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol at Shakespeare North Playhouse. Their children are Folarin Akinmade, Rebecca Levy and Grace Venus. The cast also includes understudies Lydia Rosa Morales Scully and Adam Scott Pringle.
Cinderella is directed by James Baker, who said, "it’s such a gift to be directing this year’s rock ‘n’ roll panto at the beautiful Everyman. We’re bringing together an awesomely talented team to ensure this year’s show has heaps of sass, silliness and sparkle but has plenty of love."
