OVER the next three weekends, Arts Centre Washington will be taken over by a talented amateur troupe.

Each new year Washington Theatre Group stage a pantomime at the venue and this year they’ve chosen to take on the classic tale of Cinderella.

Their version, A Cinderella Fairy Tale, features Cinderella who is staying at the Ugly Sisters Inn. The audience is asked to help the fun magical Fairy Cake and best friend Buttons make Cinderella’s happily ever after come true.

But watch out Prince Charming – the horrible Madame Cruel will stop at nothing to get what she wants!
