The traditional Christmas pantomime always has a lot to live up to and at Sudbury’s Quay Theatre both casts performing Cinderella managed to deliver.

Running from December 14 to December 30, the show, which was written by Michael Munn, kept audiences of all ages entertained with fun and frolics.

Theatre co-ordinator Nicki Murphy, who played the Fairy Godmother in the Sudbury Dramatic Society’s (SDS) panto, said almost every show had been a sell-out success.

“We got very good feedback and people really enjoyed it,” she said.

“There were very few seats available and it is a traditional panto that is lots of fun.”

Mrs Murphy, who has been involved at the Quay for more than 20 years, said a total of 22 people had taken part in the show.

“Everybody had a good time, it was a great script and excellent costuming,” she added. “Everything just came together.”

The SDS show Our Town begins in March.
