Cinderella @ The Hippodrome

What better way to spend a rainy Saturday than in the theatre watching a panto? Panto season may be drawing to a close, but the missus and I hadn’t been to one since moving to Birmingham so we thought it was about time (actually, she’d never been to a pantomime in her life! *shock*). Cinderella is on over in the Hippodrome, starring none other than Brian Conley! “Who?!” I hear you say? Well, maybe you didn’t say, but I myself had no idea who he was (I grew up abroad, so missed out on his earlier days of fame).

It’s a great show; the whole cast were excellent and very entertaining for the kids of all ages! ;-) But it’s only on for another two weeks this season, so get down to the Hippodrome if you’re looking for something to do next weekend!

PS There are some pictures on FlickR and a couple of videos on YouTube:

  • FlickR photoset
  • Video 1 (near the start of the panto)
  • Video 2 (Brian trying to get everyone to sing that Amarillo song)
  • Video 3 (Cinderella will go to the ball!)
  • Video 4 (Pre-finale entertainment: kids singing “Old Mac Donald”)
