Cinderella will go to the ball – thanks to the St James Pantomime Players.

The Players are putting on their 47th panto, complete with Ugly Sisters, a pumpkin carriage and that elusive glass slipper.

Kiera Fletcher plays Cinders, Jess Varney is her Prince Charming and the wicked Ugly Sisters are played by panto dames Jordan Anderson and Jack Blakey.

The family show runs at St James’s Church Hall, Beaufort Grove, off Bolton Road, from tonight to Saturday at 7.15pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.15pm.
