You shall go to the ball with Westfield Folkhouse’s panto

Westfield Folkhouse Pantomime Group perform their 76th annual panto production - Cinderella - at Mansfield Palace Theatre from January 9-16.

The classic tale, arguably the most popular of all pantomimes, sees Prince Charming looking to find a girl who loves him for himself – not just because he is a prince. All eligible ladies in the kingdom are invited to the Grand Ball to aid him in his quest.

Cinderella hopes to go to the ball but is stopped by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. But Cinderella is rewarded for a kindness she has shown and does get to the ball. However, midnight arrives and seemingly spoils everything! But in true panto style, good triumphs over evil.

Performances will be staged at 7.15pm (6.30pm on Sunday) at the Palace Theatre. Matinees are on both Saturdays (2.30pm), Sunday morning (10.30am), and Sunday afternoon (2.30pm).

Tickets cost £5.75, available from the box office on 01623 633133.
