Cinderella cast at the Epstein

Cinderella broke The Epstein Theatre’s box office records to become the venue’s most successful pantomime ever.

As the curtain dropped on the final performance, the cast has played to more than 3,000 more theatregoers than past Christmas pantomimes—an increase of 20% in audience numbers.

Regal Entertainments’ inaugural Christmas production at the Epstein ran from December 7 to January 5 and starred Emmerdale’s Sammy Winward, Benidorm’s Crissy Rock and Brookside’s Sarah White, Shameless’s Warren Donnelly, Andrew Geater, Samantha Palin and Lewis Devine.
