Julian Clary heads the line up for the Theatre Royal pantomime
Comedian Julian Clary will be joined by guest stars Keith Harris, Orville and Cuddles in this year’s unmissable Theatre Royal pantomime Cinderella.
Julian Clary is one of the country’s most recognisable entertainers. During his career he has turned his hand to comedy, acting, presenting, writing and he even performed as a novice dancer on Strictly Come Dancing, where he reached the final. As well as his autobiography, Julian has written two novels and has just completed a national tour of his one man show. Julian, who will be playing the role of Prince Charming’s right hand man Dandini, has appeared in numerous record-breaking pantomimes around the country and last appeared at Birmingham Hippodrome in Dick Wittington.
Keith Harris, who plays Buttons, is one of Britain’s most inventive and talented performers and – together with his creations, Orville and Cuddles – has starred in every major theatre throughout the UK, including two pantomime seasons at the London Palladium and at the Dominion Theatre. This will be Keith’s 43rd pantomime. Last year Keith performed at the Birmingham Hippodrome with Julian Clary, to much acclaim.
Julian Clary is delighted to be in pantomime at the Theatre Royal: “I love doing pantomime and I’m really looking forward to being in Plymouth this year. Cinderella is just the loveliest story and Dandini is a fabulous role to play.”
With an abundance of comedy, stunning sets, fabulous costumes and pantomime magic, Cinderella is ideal entertainment for all ages. Cinderella runs at the Theatre Royal from Friday 16 December 2011 to Saturday 21 January 2012.
