A popular drama group in the Moorlands is hoping to come back from an enforced “hiatus” due to the Covid-19 pandemic to perform a pantomime in February.

Cheadle Amateur Theatrical Society (CATS) are set to return to the stage to bring audience members their production of ‘Cinderella’ (oh yes they are!), subject to Covid-19 restrictions.

The original script has been adapted by director of production James Walker with Laura Goodhew returning as musical director after her stellar work for CATS’s last panto ‘Jack and His Blooming Big Beanstalk’.

The classic tale is set to be portrayed with Brianne Chell playing Cinderella, Rebekah Joy Snow as Grizelda, Zac Bethel as Buttons and Miriam Hermolle as Prince Charming.

Meanwhile, Dan Ede Smith and Rich Gilbert will be depicting ugly sisters Lotty and Dotty while Jason Greenwood portrays Baron Hardup, as Caroline Stokes plays Dandini.

Scheduled for the school half-term in February, it will be James Walker’s third consecutive production for the group.

A spokesperson for CATS said: “James Walker is determined that Cinderella is going to be a spectacular production filled will colour, light and musical numbers.

“The costumes will be more outrageous than ever and the feel-good factor of this show will brighten even the coldest and darkest February night.”

More details of the production are to follow in due course, including information regarding protocols should the government put Covid-19 restrictions in place.
