The Churchill Theatre in Bromley is gearing up for a magical Christmas season as it unveiled the much-anticipated cast for this year’s family pantomime, ‘Cinderella’. The glittering event took place at the Old Palace in Bromley, and the star-studded lineup promises to bring early Christmas sparkle to the city.
Brenda Edwards, a renowned musical theatre star and television personality, will take on the role of The Fairy Godmother, weaving spells and making wishes come true. Edwards’s career skyrocketed when she emerged as the last woman standing in the 2005 season of ‘The X Factor’. Since then, she has conquered the musical theatre world with her powerful performances in acclaimed productions such as ‘Chicago’, ‘Carousel’, and ‘Hairspray’. She recently concluded a sensational run at the London Coliseum in ‘We Will Rock You’, portraying the Killer Queen. Edwards is also a familiar face on daytime television as a regular on ITV’s popular panel show, ‘Loose Women’.
Brenda Edwards said,“I’m so excited to be back in Pantoland this year! I can’t wait to perform as the iconic Fairy Godmother in the most magical panto of them all. Bromley audiences, see you soon!”
Matt Powder, General Manager at the Churchill Theatre said: “The Churchill Theatre is thrilled that the
utterly magical Cinderella will be taking over our stage this Christmas after our record-breaking panto last year! We’re looking forward to welcoming this hugely talented cast who are sure to put on a fabulous
show, perfect for the whole family.”
Joining Brenda Edwards in this magical adventure is a stellar cast that includes ventriloquist John Kimmons as Baron Hardup and comedian Steven Dalziel as Buttons. Tia Gyngell steps into the title role of Cinderella, while West End performers Darren Bennett and Jak Allen-Anderson will showcase their talents as Cinderella’s wicked stepsisters.
Produced by Crossroads Pantomimes, the world’s leading panto producer, and the company behind the Churchill’s pantomimes since 2016, ‘Cinderella’ promises to captivate audiences with its timeless tale of transformation, magic, and love.
