Review Cinderella Birmingham 2017

Review Cinderella Birmingham Hippodrome…

Our favourite panto is back this Christmas with the most spectacular production & BIGGEST cast ever for 2017/2018!

Cinderella at the Birmingham Hippodrome (last years London Palladium production) offers a stunning set, incredible cast and one of the most beautiful spectacles in showbiz history.

You get killer vocals from Beverley, the best Prince in panto history with Danny & a genuine breath-taking belly laughs from Matt!

There’s no question this is a sensational masterclass of pantomime.

Enjoy our HD Video review via YouTube with official show images:

Brum’s own Soul-diva Beverley Knight steals the show with remarkable vocals.

God is this woman talented! Bev opens the show with a breath-taking showstopper that sets the tone with audience astounded with amazement!

Her delicious voice is celebrated during her panto debut as Fairy Godmother.

Meet the STAR of the show, Beverley Knight:

Meanwhile, Strictly Come Dancing finalist Danny Mac is quite remarkable.

He’s the epitome of a Prince. Elegant, classy, a stunning dancer and every inch a leading man – Danny nails the role of Charming. He plays the role beautifully opposite a testing and teasing Buttons!

Birmingham’s panto-legend Matt Slack is back and effortlessly steals the show. 100% energy, perfect timing and likability – he’s up their with the absolute best.

The ‘kids sing-a-long’ is one of the funniest bits I’ve ever seen on stage.

Matt’s routine’s simple steal the show. He makes it look easy. It isn’t! What a star.

Comedy duo The Grumbleweeds give old fashioned panto warmth throughout and their ‘remote’ routine in pure genius!

Ugly Sister Ceri Dupree offers sensationally glam costumes and a naughtiness that every great panto deserves. He’s the least ugly and most fabulous sister I’ve ever seen!

His on-stage sibling David Dale was only cast during rehearsals and offers true brilliance via a face that only a mother could love, with a mouth the size of a walk in shower! Genius.


Gary Watson is a perfectly mincing Dandini with a naturally excellent voice.

This show screams opulence, glamour & class. The good old days of panto is back!

The kids will absolutely believe Suzanne Shaw, Cinderella, marries her Prince Charming. She’s delightful and has a quite lovely voice….albeit impossible to compete with the gospel genius of Knight.


Enjoy our exclusive HD Video of the Cinderella launch in Sept 2017:

Cinderella, produced by Olivier-nominated pantomime producer Qdos Entertainment and produced by Michael Harrison.

It looks beautiful and you can feel the warmth, talent, genius and hard work from the second the curtain rises.

Last years show made over £5 MILLION! Deservedly so!

This production has the edge over the Palladium as it offers the babes throughout. So cute and an adorable addition to the show.

As you would expect, the scenery is breath-taking, the lighting is remarkable, special effects astounding and the Live band are brilliant.

The sound at the Birmingham Hippodrome is world class. Remarkable.

Here’s Ceri, Beverley & Phil at the launch of Cinderella.
