Cinderella 2 – The Sisters Strike Back
Jealousy, deception, evil spells… will Cinderella ever get her happy ever after?
In this stinging tale of jealousy and betrayal, the Ugly Sisters are out to break up Cinderella and her Prince Charming. They’ll stop at nothing – deception, theft, magic spells… but will they ever find happiness themselves?
But don’t worry – it is all part of the latest production brought to the stage by Broughton Drama Group – their first in 3 years after a covid break.
The 22-strong cast is backed up by a crew of volunteers who have been working hard to bring ‘Cinderella 2 – The Ugly Sisters Strike Back’ to life since rehearsals began in October.
Starting from Friday until Sunday at the Victory Hall, the production is described as a hilarious sequel to Cinderella – with the ugly sisters determined to stop her living happily ever after.
The story begins in Broughton Square, where Cinderella and Prince Henri are happily preparing for their wedding day. But her ugly step-sisters, Nausea and Dyspepsia, aren’t so pleased. Annoyed they aren’t marrying the prince, they enlist the help of Wanda, the Witch of the Woods. Wanda casts a spell on the Prince, making him mean and cruel to everyone he meets. Appalled at his behaviour, Cinderella calls the wedding off! Can true love, a band of pickpockets and half the village save the day?
Director Caroline Batten has been part of Broughton Drama Group, both on stage and in the director’s chair, for many years, and says this year’s show is a welcome return to the stage. “After missing the last 2 pantomimes because of covid worries, it’s great to be back. We’ve got a great cast of all ages, and a brilliant group of volunteers making the sound, lights, props, costumes and scenery all come together. It’s a real team effort.”
