New Victoria Theatre have announced that the Fairy Godmother of all Pantomimes, Cinderella, will entertain festive Surrey theatregoers in next year’s spectacular pantomime from Friday 7 December 2018 starring Craig Revel Horwood.
Craig Revel Horwood will swap the Strictly dancefloor for Surrey’s ultimate pantomime in a fantastic new production of Cinderella, the spellbinding fairy tale packed full of sensational song and dance, special effects, audience participation and fab-u-lous comedy.
A well-known face on television in the UK, and now all over the world, Craig Revel Horwood has acted as a judge on all fourteen series of BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing where he is best-known for his no-nonsense approach to ballroom critique and his quick-wit which has solidified his reputation as one of television’s best-loved baddies. No stranger to performing Craig has enjoyed a long career as a performer, choreographer and director, most recently reprising his critically-acclaimed role as Miss Hannigan in Annie at the Piccadilly Theatre in London.
Craig will don the heels as the Wicked Stepmother marking his tenth pantomime for Qdos Entertainment having previously played the dastardly Captain Hook in Peter Pan, and the Wicked Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs delighting in audiences’ boos and hisses and wowing them with his fancy footwork and dazzling stage presence.
Speaking about his role Craig Revel Horwood said: “I’m really excited to be playing the Wicked Stepmother in Woking’s next pantomime, it will be my first time appearing in Cinderella which is such a fantastic title and one audiences know and love. I’ll be cha-cha-cha-ing my way across the New Victoria stage in an array of fantastic costumes along with a sensational cast.”
Next year’s New Victoria pantomime will once again be produced by Qdos Entertainment, the world’s biggest pantomime producer and the team behind last year’s record-breaking panto Robin Hood. With pirouettes and put-downs, waltzes and wit, Cinderella will be strictly unmissable. Book your tickets now!
