Stowmarket Operatic and Dramatic Society’s Cinderella show is running across seven performances at the town’s Regal Theatre.

Sharon Preece, as Cinderella, leads a large cast of colourful characters, including Buttons, the Ugly Sisters and Prince Charming.

The society’s chairman, Jo Chadwick, said: “It’s wonderful to see the Regal Theatre packed for every performance, with children and adults alike really getting into the Christmas spirit.

“After last year’s sell-out panto we’ve added an extra performance this year. The full houses are a just reward for all the hard work that has been put into presenting a super panto for Stowmarket – not just by the cast but everyone who has worked hard to create the show.”
