Long ago, in a far away kingdom, Cinderella is living happily until her mother dies. Her father remarries a cold, cruel woman called Teresa May who has two daughters, Rebecca and Coleen. After her father also dies, stepmother Teresa May and her wicked stepsisters turn her into a servant in her own house. Our story begins here.
We did it (oh yes we did!)
This year the team who also brought you Elf the Panto, toured a traditional pantomime with a twist. Forget-Me-Not-Productions’ version of this well loved family favourite merged elements of the traditional with the immersive. Cinderella; an Interactive Pantomime engaged audience members directly in the action throughout the performance, making them active participants in the whole show.
What exactly is an interactive pantomime?
Audiences were given the opportunity to become main characters throughout. They frequently came on the stage during the show, and interacted with the actors all through the whole performance. Cinderella seamlessly blended elements of pantomime, music, puppetry, dance and digital theatre.
This Interactive Pantomime toured special schools, mainstream schools, nurseries, nursing homes, day centres and also support groups in south Wales. There were also performances for the general public at the following venues:
- 8th December 2019, 5pm at Machen Village Hall
- 29th December 2019, 4pm at Blackwood RFC
- 4th January 2020, 4pm at Saint David’s Church, Tonyrefail
The pantomime is also touring throughout January and February 2020. Book now to avoid disappointment. You can reserve seats by emailing Clary on firstname.lastname@example.org or ringing 07977383007
