PRESS RELEASE For immediate use: 26th October 2009 Cinderella Heads to North Shropshire shropshirelive.com is pleased to announce its official media partnership with Yellow Brick Road Stage Productions for the brand new North Shropshire pantomime - Cinderella. The Civic Centre, at the heart of the wonderful market town of Whitchurch, will be the home of this family favourite from January 6th - 10th 2010. Bringing with it all the cheers and boo's expected, and a whole host of laughs and magical merriment... The production will be first professional pantomime in North Shropshire for some time. Speaking to shropshirelive.com, YBR company director, Nic Breeze said: “We have produced panto for a number of years now in Cleethorpes and the shows have been a great success”. “But being a Shropshire Lad by birth and upbringing, when the opportunity to produce a pantomime in North Shropshire presented itself, we grabbed it with both hands. Shropshire, and Whitchurch itself is such a beautiful part of the country, it is going to be a great privilege to stage Cinderella here”. “Cinderella is the story of a young girl bullied and put upon by her evil Ugly stepsisters, until one day she finally meets her Prince and all her dreams come true.” Zoé Pembroke who plays our heroine says: “She might be bullied to start with, but this Cinders has got some fight left in her yet! And with friends like Buttons (played by Tom Scott) and the Fairy Godmother (Played by Tessa Hatts from CITV‟s Wizadora) helping out, all comes right in the end.” Yellow Brick Road‟s production is a traditional Pantomime in all the right ways, with a laugh a minute story line, romance, slapstick two VERY ugly sisters, and bags and bags of fun.” But it‟s not all about professionals. As well as the sparkling principal cast, Yellow Brick Road are looking for a number of young budding dancers to join the show playing villagers and courtiers. Do you belong to a dance school or group? If so, get your dance schools to contact Yellow Brick Road Stage Productions by email: email@example.com and you may be treading the boards this Christmas season.
