Cinderella is a great story and once again; the Assembly Hall Theatre will be presenting a pantomime for the whole family packed with laughs, songs and music”.
The show is once again produced by UK Productions, and Producer Martin Dodd said “Cinderella is one of the most popular pantomimes of all time and I am thrilled that we are bringing it to the Assembly hall Theatre following last year’s hugely successful production of Peter Pan.
