Review: Cinderella at St Helens Theatre Royal

We love panto season. The kids get so excited about watching the show, and we always look forward to seeing them. One of our favourite theatres - St Helens Theatre Royal is currently showing Cinderella. With some amazing twists on the classic tale, this show was a rip-roaring adventure full of laughs and surprises along the way.

The cast were brilliant as always at St Helens Theatre Royal - we were treated to two 'dames' as the ugly sisters, who were hilarious and wore some pretty amazing outfits! This year the guest star is Lee Latchford from Steps. There were plenty of Stes references chucked in for good measure - myself and my husband were laughing but I suppose the kids would be too young to understand all that - maybe I need to play them some classic Steps!

The panto is funny, exciting and at times really romantic. During a scene with the Prince and Cinderella, Rosie turned to me and said "Mummy I have got some happy tears, have you?" The finale was fabulous, with a full-on Steps medley to sing and dance along too.

I would definitely recommend taking a trip to St Helens Theatre Royal this Easter with the family. It is such a fun two hours to spend - we absolutely loved it.

The panto runs until 15th April. A family ticket is £56 for two adults and two children which I think is great value.  You can book your tickets here.
