Ipswich’s pantomime season is well and truly under way after the Regent Theatre held its first performances of Cinderella, starring former S Club 7 star Hannah Spearritt.

The popstar, who plays the Fairy Godmother, is starring alongside Adam Garcia and Cleo Demetriou, who are playing Prince Charming and Cinderella respectively, for the widely-anticipated performances this month.

Staged by regular producers Enchanted Entertainment, the 2019 pantomime promises to be the biggest and best at The Regent yet.

There will be the Ugly Sisters, Baron Hardup, the cruel stepmother, kindly Buttons and the benevolent Fairy Godmother - and Cinders, of course, who will captivate Prince Charming when they meet at the Royal Ball.

The first performances took place at 2pm and 5pm on Saturday, December 14.
