It wouldn’t be Christmas in Cardiff without a pantomime, (oh no it wouldn’t), and the New Theatre has once again pulled in an all-star cast for a laugh-out-loud show filled with special effects.
The New Theatre has announced that much-loved television personality, author, style guru, presenter and chef Gok Wan will sashay his way into Cardiff this festive season to star in the most spectacular pantomime of them all, Cinderella. Gok will be joined by panto dame royalty in the form of returning legend Mike Doyle and the hilariously fabulous Ceri Dupree as The Ugly Sisters.
Gok Wan will play The Fairy Gokmother, offering helpful style tips to The Ugly Sisters and creating the most magical ball gown in panto-land for Cinderella!
