CINDERELLA

THE SENSATIONAL SHETLAND PONIES LIVE ON STAGE!**

Forced into a life of drudgery by her wicked stepsisters Cinderella dreams of escape and romance. With the help of a Fairy Godmother, a pumpkin and a touch of magic Cinderella is whisked off to the Prince’s Ball....but will she live Happily Ever After?


With hit songs, a live band, a stunning bespoke set, fabulous costumes, the talented cast includes: This Morning’s Alison Hammond as the ‘Fairy Godmother’; the welcome return of Olivia Birchenough from Channel 5’s Milkshake! as ‘Cinderella’; comedian Tam Ryan as ‘Buttons’; and ‘Ugly Sisters’ Jamie Morris and Tarot Joseph.

Alison Hammond is ‘Fairy Godmother’. Known for her quick wit, outrageous presenting style, and big heart, Alison’s sense of fun as an interviewer on ITV’s This Morning has seen her tap- dance with Renée Zellweger, rap with Will Smith, jam with Russel Crowe, and be serenaded by Hugh Jackman...to name just a few. Alison also became an audience favourite in 2014’s Strictly Come Dancing. Other TV credits include her rise to fame in Channel 4’s Big Brother where she first won the hearts of the British public. She then went on to appear on I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here where she was a contestant in 2010. Alison is also an accomplished actress having appeared in various TV dramas, notably Boon, Chalkface, Doctors, and three series of the BAFTA award- winning Palace Hill.

Olivia Birchenough is ‘Cinderella’. Making a welcome return, Olivia is back at the Floral following her vivacious performance as Snow White in 2014. Trained at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and with the National Youth Theatre, upon graduating, Olivia began presenting for Channel 5’s leading children’s TV strand Milkshake!. Along with presenting live links in the mornings, Olivia fronted the channel’s Bop Box series and the two nationwide theatre shows Milkshake! Party Party Live and Milkshake Live: Come Out to Play!. Olivia also presented the Milkshake Live: Bop in the Park residency at Drayton Manor Theme Park.

Tam Ryan plays ‘Buttons’. Tam gained his first role as Edward Hodgkiss in the BBC wartime drama How We Used To Live at the age of 4. He went on to train at Leeds Institute for Performing Arts and has since embarked on a successful and varied career. An accomplished actor, his TV credits include: Emmerdale, Death Comes To Pemberley, Coronation Street and Waterloo Road. Tam can already consider himself a veteran of British pantomime and is a familiar face in the north-west having spent 5 successive years as panto comic at Manchester Opera House.

Devilish divas Jamie Morris as ‘Silly Cilla Hardup’ and Tarot Joseph as ‘Daisy Hardup’ return to the Floral after 5 years to play 'the uglies'.

Cinderella, the most favourite of all fairy tales, is jam-packed with music and dance, fun and laughter, a beautiful girl, a fairy godmother, a handsome prince, a glass slipper and, of course, two ugly sisters! Oh yes it is!


*Includes a £1.50 per ticket fee. Fee capped at 8 tickets. No fees to Friends of the Floral.

** Please note that we hold the welfare of Shetland ponies very highly and have put in place several actions to ensure the ponies, as well as all staff and patrons are kept safe and well and are able to enjoy our wonderful pantomime.  If you wish to obtain more details please email floralpaviliontheatre@wirral.gov.uk .

Relaxed Performance (Autism Friendly)
A relaxed performance is about welcoming children with special needs (including Autistic Spectrum Conditions and/or learning disabilities) and, crucially, their families to the theatre to a performance where those needs are accounted for with a more relaxed atmosphere and some changes to the production itself if necessary eg: lowering of lights or sound at certain points of the show.

Nearer the time we will also provide a scene guide to anyone who needs it in advance, as well as a clear synopsis and a chance to be introduced to the actors before the performance starts. There is a special ‘chill-out’ zone which can be used during any point of the performance. This will be a safe and supervised space for audience members to come out if they should wish to take time out. And there’ll be lots of friendly members of the Front of House team on hand.




Charity Partner for this Performance: Autism Together
Autism Together is the new operating name of Wirral Autistic Society: A multi award-winning autism charity founded in 1968, employing more than 1000 people in Merseyside and the North West and caring for and supporting more than 500 people with autism and social communication difficulties. It offers specialist support services for families and children, residential care, respite care and supported living and a wide range of day services. www.autismtogether.co.uk
