Behind the Scenes: Cinderella cast photoshoots!

Panto season truly feels like its on its way once our cast photoshoot is done and dusted! Colourful costumes are stitched, make-up is applied and our photographer sets up his equipment as our fantastic cast step into their characters for the very first time.

We're thrilled that the legendary ballet dancer and TV personality Wayne Sleep is back in Cambridge for his second Arts Theatre panto. Wayne will be donning his heels as an Ugly Sister alongside Cambridge's favourite funny man Matt Crosby (for what will be his fourteenth pantomime!) and Liza Goddard (Skippy the Bush Kangaroo) as the Fairy Godmother. Charlotte Kennedy (Les Misérables) is starring as Cinderella, Kevin Kennedy (Coronation Street's Curly Watts) as Baron Hardup and Isaac Stanmore (Hetty Feather) as the loveable Buttons. Completing the cast is Emily Squibb (Young Frankenstein) as Prince Charming and Nancy Hill (Legally Blonde) as Dandini.

A few weeks ago we gathered some of our Cinderella stars together for the first time, here's some behind the scenes shots of them in action...
