About the event

Be our guest... as tale as old as time gets a brand new twist this Christmas.

Starring Derby's very own GWEN TAYLOR and BEN FAULKS (CBeebies' Mr Bloom).

In the little french village of Spondon-on-the-Seine Belle is pursued by the handsome but not too bright local heartthrob Gaston (Aston Dobson). She yearns for adventure, but soon gets more than she bargained for when, along with her neighbours Idle Jacques (CBeebies’ Mr Bloom) and his mother Betty Brioche (Morgan Brind), she finds herself trapped inside an enchanted castle by a mysterious beast. Will true love conquer all? Will the Enchantress' (Gwen Taylor) curse ever be broken? Will Betty Brioche burn her baguettes?

Featuring shimmering sets, outrageous costumes, magic, mayhem and monstrous fun, this brand new production promises to be Derby LIVE’s most spectacular panto yet!

Reviews

Reviews for last year's pantomime, Cinderella.

“….a well written and funny script that suited young and old. We did all have a ball.” Theatre Online

“…..it moves at a cracking pace and the hardworking cast members give it their all.” The Stage

“Big, bold and booming. With a stage that size you have no choice but to do things in a grand style and Derby Live and Paul Holman Associates pulled out all the stops to give the city a worthy show. This is a lavish family show with bucketfuls of slapstick and special effects, beautiful dancers and stunning costumes. What’s not to like? Book your tickets now and go see for yourself.” Artsbeat

"The spirit of Christmas was alive and well by the end..." "The children looked mesmerised, and the parents were definitely surprised, leaving the audience in the festive spirit, and ready to enjoy the weeks ahead." Derby Telegraph 

"Well we had a great time at Derby’s biggest ball! Cinderella at Derby Arena did not disappoint the DerbyDaysOut family! It had all of the panto fun that you’d expect - jam packed full of musical numbers, dancing, scene changes and of course lots and lots of laughs! Stunning costumes, fantastic scenery and special effects all combine with great performances to create the perfect panto experience. We definitely recommend going to see it this Christmas." DerbyDaysOut

“Watched it last night and love every minute, for anyone who is unsure about going, just go, you will not be disappointed.” Samantha Lamb

“Top performance!! A MUST SEE!" Kay Whittaker

"Fabulous panto enjoyed by pupils and staff! Thank you @derby_arena." Rosehill_Infants @ Rosehill_Inf
