You shall go to the ball as Qdos Entertainment, the world’s biggest panto producer, and Theatre Royal Plymouth stage the most magical pantomime of them all, Cinderella!

Everyone’s favourite fashion-guru, Gok Wan, and comedy ventriloquist, Paul Zerdin, will star in this year’s magical pantomime adventure, Cinderella,

The famous rags-to-riches story will be brought magically to life in a sumptuous production which carries the Theatre Royal Plymouth’s hallmark of quality entertainment for all ages; an abundance of comedy, stunning sets, outrageous costumes, some mice, the magical pantomime moment when Cinderella is transported to the Prince’s Ball with the help of a pumpkin, and lots of Fairy Gokmother magic!

Running time: 2 hours 20 minutes (including a 20 minute interval)

From the moment Gok flies on stage to open the show, to the sparkly and sequinned finale, the pace doesn’t let up… Like Cinderella, I was having such a good time I didn’t glance up at the clock.


Cinderella is a show that glitters with sumptuous sets and a feel-good factor that sees most of the audience on their feet at the finale.

The Herald

Panto-goers, I felt, got two shows in one this year: the traditional panto and a top ventriloquism show

North Devon Journal

Screamingly funny, touching and a dab hand at dealing with kids, Zerdin got the loudest round of applause at the end, and deservedly so.

Exeter Express & Echo

There’s a smattering of adult humour, a good dollop of poo jokes and great fun by the bucketful.
