Panto review: Cinderella at Hertford Theatre

Sue Ramsey takes her grandsons to see the ugly sisters, fairy godmother, prince and, of course, Cinderella herself

A wicked witch produced a rosy apple from her basket and cackled, I wondered if I had confused the pantomime! I hadn’t she turned into a fairy godmother and things proceeded nicely.

Watching my grandsons, aged two and five years sitting with their mouths wide open and mesmerised was just part of an enjoyable Sunday afternoon.

The ugly sisters were hilarious and Prince Charming and Cinderella had beautiful singing voices. Mix this with slapstick, jokes and dancing and a happy ever after ending and you have the perfect panto.

The panto runs at the new Hertford Theatre until January 2 with tickets at �13.50 for adults and �11.50 for children or a family ticket is �40. Call the box office on 01992 531500 or book online at
