A theatre group has teamed up with a dance group for its next panto performance.
Phoenix Productions will stage Cinderella at the Glebe Centre in Murton, bringing together a 15-strong cast alongside 18 members of the Applegarth Academy of Dance.
The team behind the show have put together their own re-telling of the story and hope the event will help people get over the post-Christmas blues.
The drama group’s Sarah Taylor said: “We’re very excited to be joining up with Applegarth. “They have an award winning history, and we can’t wait to share a stage with them.
“Phoenix came from humble beginnings, with only £30 in the bank. “Since then we’ve gone from strength to strength, and with Cinderella, we hope to carry on entertaining our brilliant region. “Our members and volunteers put in a lot of hard work to make sure we put on the best show possible.
“It’s a proper, traditional panto, is full of fun and has lots of slapstick and mischief going on.”
