starring Brian Conley, Lynda Bellingham and Basil Brush … Boom Boom
Sat 17 Dec – Sun 29 Jan
Brian Conley makes a triumphant return to the Hippodrome, the home of Britain’s biggest pantomime, following four record-breaking previous panto appearances. Brian is joined by actress, writer, broadcaster – and popular panelist on ITV’s Loose Women – Lynda Bellingham, and icon of children’s television, Basil Brush!
The most popular pantomime of them all, Cinderella will be brought magically to life by a superb cast, an abundance of comedy, stunning sets and costumes
and fabulous special effects including an amazing flying horse which transports Cinderella to The Ball! Pantomime at its best!
Brian has hosted numerous television shows including the hugely-successful The Brian Conley Show. On stage he has starred in the West End and in the touring productions of Hairspray and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, both of which he played at Birmingham Hippodrome. He is currently touring the UK in Brother Love’s Travelling Salvation.
Lynda Bellingham has enjoyed a rich acting career spanning 40 years, with highlights including her roles as Helen Herriot in All Things Great and Small and Faith Grayshott in Second Thoughts and Faith in the Future. For Lynda her biggest triumph was in creating the role of Chris (as played by Helen Mirren in the film of the same name) in Calendar Girls both for the national tour and in the West End.
Michael Harrison, Executive Producer of Cinderella said,
“We are delighted that Brian is returning to the Hippodrome stage and thrilled that he is joined by Lynda Bellingham in this lavish production of the most popular panto title of them all.”
