CBeebies Panto: Strictly Cinderella

Friday 16 December



There is glitz and glamour, sequins and sparkle in the CBeebies pantomime this year as the stars of the children's channel perform Strictly Cinderella. This year’s production combines the usual pantomime ingredients but with a twist - for one night only, the set of Strictly Come Dancing is transformed into Prince Charming’s Palace!

Prince Charming (Alex Winters) is having dance lessons from the Palace choreographer (Strictly professional dancer, Artem Chigventsev) in order to perform in a dance competition, Strictly CBeebies. But the dance lessons aren’t going very well…

When the Prince receives the lowest score ever in the dance competition, he storms off into the forest where he stumbles upon Cinderella (Katrina Bryan from Nina and the Neurons). She helps him with his dance steps but then disappears before the Prince can find out who she is. So he decides to hold a Royal Ball and invite everyone in CBeebies.

Will Cinderella make it to the Royal Ball and will Prince Charming find her before the clock strikes midnight?

Also appearing in Strictly Cinderella are: Chris Jarvis as Baron Hardup; Ben Faulks (aka Mr Bloom) as Buttons Bloom; Nisha Anil as the Fairy Godmother; Katy Ashworth as The Royal Cook; Sid Sloane as Dandini; Pui Fan Lee as Baroness Bossy Nova; Phil Gallagher (aka Mister Maker) and Justin Fletcher as the ugly sisters, Makerainer and Tumberlina; and Cerrie Burnell and Andy Day as the hosts of Strictly CBeebies. There are also special guest appearances from the Strictly Come Dancing judges: Craig Revel Horwood, Alesha Dixon, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman.
