Arts + EntertainmentChristmas


The clock is ticking on the countdown to curtains up on Cinderella the pantomime this December at the Hazlitt Theatre.

The insideKENT team recently attended the press launch for Cinderella on The Kentish Lady River Boat in Maidstone and met some of the fabulous cast.

Rustie Lee – best known for her infectious laugh and culinary skills on Morning TV, most recently starred in BAFTA nominated The Real Marigold Hotel 2 – attended the official press launch and dressed in full costume as Fairy Godmother. There were reports her laugh could be heard across Kent! In person Rustie is lovely and we cannot wait to see her on stage at the Hazlitt Theatre.


We also met Stefan Booth from Eastenders, Dancing on Ice, The Bill and Hollyoaks to name but a few shows in his repertoire. Stefan was in full costume as Prince Charming and he is charming in real life too! Roll on Cinderella starting on 1st December and on for the whole month – last performance on 31st December.

Back this year by popular demand are two familiar faces from last year: Adam Borzone as one of the Ugly Sisters and Craig Anderson as Buttons. Tickets are selling in record time and we recommend you book your favourite dates, times and seats now to avoid any disappointment.
