CINDERELLA (article first published : 2004-11-30)

After an absence of nearly a decade, KickstArt is staging a traditional family pantomime for the festive season. What promises to be a glittering magical version of Cinderella comes to the quaint Kwasuka Theatre in Greyville from December 3 until January 2.

The well known and much loved family fairy tale of the kitchen maid who becomes a princess by losing a crystal slipper, is being told in true panto style complete with spectacular sets and costumes, popular songs, sparkling choreography and gentle comedy, performed by an all-star local cast – suitable for all ages – from little ones to grannies.

The captivating Belinda Henwood (Popcorn, Dangerous Liaisons, Table Manners and Strapless) is in the title role playing opposite Claire Cassidy (Crooked) as the Prince Charming.

Thomie Holtzhausen (Georgy Porgy) and Darren King (Table Manners, Red Coat Tales and Laughing Wild) are the Ugly Sisters, with Bryan Hiles (Pillowtalk) as Cinderella’s faithful and lovelorn friend, Buttons, and Josette Eales (Dangerous Liaisons) as Dandini - the Prince’s feisty valet. The company is delighted to welcome well-known choreographer and actress Kenlynn Sutherland back to the stage as the quirky and loveable Fairy Godmother.

This magical show has been written and directed by Steven Stead with enchanting and elaborate designs by Greg King with sumptuous costumes from the State Theatre wardrobe. Both Steven and Greg are multiple award winners who got “bitten by the theatre bug” while watching pantomimes as children.

Kwasuka Theatre is situated on the corner of First Avenue and Stamford Hill Rd in Greyville. (Secure parking available.)

Cinderella runs from Decemer 3 to January 2 with shows Tuesday-Saturday at 19h00 (matinees on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 14h30). As there are no performances on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day, there are extra evening shows at 18h00 on December 26 and January 2).

Tickets R65 (R40 children under 12; R50 grannies and granddads). Book at Computicket. Seating is reserved, so book early to avoid disappointment)

There will be low price previews on December 3 and 4 at 19h00. Tickets R40 throughout.
