We all get to go to the ball thanks to the New Wolsey Theatre, which has chosen Cinderella for this year’s rock ‘n’ roll pantomime.

The actor-musician show has been written by Peter Rowe and features rock, pop and soul classics like It’s Raining Men to In The Midnight Hour.

Mayor Baron Hardup is preparing a royal visit from Prince Charming with only his beautiful but feisty daughter Cinderella and Buttons to help until his lonely hearts ad is answered by the mysterious Rubella De Zees, who brings along her two daughters Hernia and Verruca.

The theatre also announced the support of Ipswich Building Society for three more years.

Richard Norrington, the society’s CEO, said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with the New Wolsey. The rock ‘n’ roll pantos continue to delight the people of Suffolk and beyond, of all generations, and I’m pleased we’re a part of bringing this to the community.”

Last Year’s Panto Red Riding Hood had sold 80% of tickets before the show even started. Tickets for this year go on sale to director circle members from February 28, friends of the New Wolsey from March 1, priority members and groups from March 10 and general sale from March 17.
