The Musical Pantomime

Fri 5 Dec 2008 - Sat 17 January 2009

"Look no further than your own doorstep for everything that embodies the magic of Christmas. Cinderella is not only by far the most spectacular panto I have ever seen, but is also up there with the best musical theatre on offer anywhere"

- Southern Daily Echo

"A classic piece of feelgood escapism"

- Bournemouth Daily Echo

"This is highly-polished nuttiness delivered with the highest possible production values... Just as you'd expect from the Mayflower at Christmas, this is lavish and spectacular"

- Chichester Observer

Join Cinderella, Buttons, Prince Charming and Ryan the Rat in this extravaganza of a Christmas show. Filled with magic, mayhem and music from a full orchestra watch as they battle against the Ugly Sisters with a little help from their flying Fairy Godmother.

Christopher Biggins stars alongside a returning Matthew Kelly, Stefanie Powers and special guest star Craig McLachlan.

Christopher Biggins was crowned king of the jungle 2007 in ITV's I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! and following a long and varied career in television, film and theatre he will be playing Buttons.

Matthew Kelly returns following his critically acclaimed performance as the Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz at The Mayflower last Christmas. Donning a dress once more, and accompanied by his son Matthew Rixon, they will be playing the Ugly Sisters.

Stefanie Powers, a veteran of over 200 television and film appearances as well as the star of massive '80s TV hit Hart to Hart, will be making wishes come true as the Fairy Godmother. She recently played Anna in The King and I on tour throughout the United States.

Craig McLachlan is returning to The Mayflower to play Prince Charming. He previously won the hearts of the people of Hampshire in the role of Caractacus Potts in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and as Bob Wallace in Irving Berlin's White Christmas the Musical. Best Known for his roles in Neighbours, Home and Away and Bugs on TV, Craig is excited to be returning to Southampton.

The Mayflower has again teamed up with Michael Rose and Chris Moreno, the producers of The Wizard of Oz, last year's box office record-breaking Mayflower Christmas show, and White Christmas, to present a delightful star studded new production for all the family this year.

This is the UK's biggest musical pantomime specifically designed and written for the Mayflower Theatre and starring Christopher Biggins (Buttons), Matthew Kelly and his son Matthew Rixon (Ugly Sisters) and in her very first pantomime Stefanie Powers (Fairy Godmother) along with special guest star Craig McLachlan as Prince Charming. Jam packed with fabulous flying, mystical magic and colourful costumes this is one fun filled evening the family cannot miss out on.

With a little help from Buttons this Christmas you shall go to the best ball in the country!
