Cinderella at Bristol Hippodrome

Cinderella at Bristol Hippodrome

Nothing spells out Christmas like a P A N T O M I N E and this week Lexia and I were lucky enough to head to see Cinderella at Bristol Hippodrome. This year’s panto has stars Gok Wan and Brian Conley plus a full cast of great actors. Including the young talents of performers from the Bristol School of Dancing.

Fairy Gokmother

From the minute Fairy Gokmother burst onto the stage the jokes stated to roll. Gok Wan, brought lots of humour to his role, including lots of references to his How to Look Good Naked show.  Gok’s costume was shiny and sparkly and perfectly too flamboyant. Brian Conley played buttons, who brought humour and many references to the trends of 2018. His floss was quality viewing and had the audience smiling. The singing and dancing from Cinderella played by Lauren Hall was magnificent. 

Ben Stock and Neal Wright aka The Ugly Sisters were comical throughout. Therefore their references to being ‘identical’ plus looking amazing brought plenty of giggles to the audience! The fairy Gokmother admits it would be a challenge too far to get them to look good!

Cinderella Ugly Sisters

The set was grand and eye-catching, especially the Ballroom so when Cinderella and Prince Charming finally came together to live happily ever after, their entrance was like a real-life fairytale to the younger children in the audience, definitely something that they will remember for a long time.

The show was definitely for all the family with the magic of Cinderella. started some risky adult humour thrown in. No panto would be complete without a bit of audience participation. Buttons got a member of the audience to help his efforts to win ‘Bristol’s Got Talent’. Some children from the audience helped out with a singalong with Buttons so tha was entertaining.

The team at QDOS Productions did a fantastic job and Cinderella at Bristol Hippodrome is definitely one for the memory jar. The production runs until 6th January 2019 and tickets can be booked online at atg tickets.
