Cinderella Cast Announcement
The Bristol Hippodrome have announced that comedy legend, musical theatre, television and Strictly star Brian Conley and celebrity style guru and television presenter Gok Wan will star in this year’s spectacular production of the Fairy Godmother of all Pantomimes, Cinderella, from Saturday 8 December.
In a career spanning three decades Brian has appeared in award-winning West End musicals and television sitcoms, presented his own chat shows, recorded three albums and completed numerous sell-out tours of the UK. Most recently he was a contestant on the 15th series of BBC 1’s Strictly Come Dancing. Coupled with pro-dancer Amy Dowden Brian was fifth to leave the competition, not before wowing the nation with his endearing dance routines and loveable personality.
Gok Wan will play The Fairy Gokmother, offering helpful style tips to The Ugly Sisters and creating the most magical ball gown in panto-land for Cinderella! Cinderella marks Gok’s sixth pantomime appearance, the first of which was the subject of the Channel 4 documentary Gok Does Panto. Cinderella marks Gok and Brian’s fourth pantomime together.
Bristol audiences shall go to the ball this Christmas as Cinderella transforms from rags to riches, outwits her very Ugly Sisters, and with the help of her hilarious friend Buttons and one very magical Fairy Godmother, wins the heart of the dashing Prince Charming. Cinderella will feature all of the ingredients of the perfect pantomime; a fabulous cast and orchestra, laugh-out-loud comedy, stunning scenery and special effects, beautiful costumes and plenty of boos and hisses for all the family to enjoy.
