Marina Theatre's 2021 Pantomime
Covid-19 restrictions meant that Cinderella couldn’t go to the ball last year.
But, in 2021…she will find her Prince Charming!
With one charming Prince, two Ugly Sisters and a huge sprinkling of Fairy Godmother magic, join the Marina Theatre for Christmas 2021 to find out if the glass slipper fits and if Cinderella makes it to the ball and back before midnight.
Enjoy breath-taking special effects, spectacular scenery and sparkling costumes along with plenty of traditional pantomime mayhem, laughter and chances for you to join in the fun!
The Marina Theatre are delighted to announce that Prince Charming will be played by Jaymi Hensley from popular boyband Union J. The band formed on the ninth series of The X Factor in 2012.
