The magical rags to riches fairytale story of Cinderella will be presented at Sydney’s State Theatre from Friday 1 to Sunday 17 July.

Cinderella will be the third panto to be produced by Bonnie Lythgoe after the success of Snow White Winter Family Musical in 2014 and Aladdin and His Wondrous Lamp last year.

The show will feature sumptuous glittering sets, gorgeous fairy-tale costumes, contemporary songs, fabulous dance numbers, riotous comedy magic and bags of audience participation.

It will star; Real Housewives of Melbourne favourite Gina Liano who will play 'Wicked Stepmother', Lara Mulcahy (who played 'Madame Thenardier' in Les Miserables) will be 'Fairy Godmother', Jimmy Rees (aka Mr Giggle) as 'Dandini', Kev Orkian as 'Buttons', Peter Everett as 'Baron Hardup', Craig Bennett and Josh Adamson will play 'Ugly Stepsisters', Jaime Hadwen as 'Cinderella', and Hi5 favourite Tim Maddren as 'Prince Charming'.

A modern panto version of the greatest fairytale of all time. Fun for the whole family!
