Pantomime box office records tumbled again at Gorleston Pavilion when the cast of Cinderella thrilled and delighted packed houses over Christmas.

Helen McDermott, co-producer at Ohyesitiz Productions, said: “It just shows that well-produced and performed panto still weaves its magic.”

Reviewing the show Tony Mallion wrote: “Pantomime with all its absurdity has never been more popular, providing fun for all the family and quite possibly (as it did for me 60 years ago) introducing youngsters to a lifetime of theatre-going. Long may examples like Cinderella continue.”

Plans are already advanced and bookings already taken for this year’s production of Sleeping Beauty, which will run from December 5 until December 30.
