Bourne Free presents Sinderella, Balls Deep

Let me tell you about Sinderella, a tale that’s been around for hundreds of years, that started way back in ancient Greece and Egypt with a girl named Rhodopis. This story spanned the ages and saw its more modern version come back to life in 17th century France thanks to Charles Perrault, and later, took a darker turn thanks to the Brothers Grimm.

It may be less than 100 sleeps until the curtain rises on this year’s Bournemouth Pavilion pantomime but a cast call to meet the fabulous panto stars can never be too early!
