Cinderella, the fairy godmother of all pantomimes, is at the King's Theatre Edinburgh this Christmas, and the familiar trio of Allan Stewart, Andy Gray and Grant Stott are back for another run in this year’s offering.

From the moment the sparkling Cinderella back drop rose up and Fairy May (Allan Stewart) descended the audience was highly entertained.

Whilst setting the scene we are introduced to the evil Baroness Hibernia Hardup (Grant Stott) and the step-mother to Cinderella (Gillian Parkhouse). Teased by her ugly sisters (Clare Gray and Maureen Carr) the story unfolds as we meet Prince Charming (James Darch) and his footman Dandini (Andrew Keay).

The stage is filled with a bright set and positive energy.  Highlights for me are sparkling soldiers, pumpkin head dancers, dancing Unicorns, the great effective use of simple pyrotechnics and the Christmas feeling as it snowed.

The show is colourful, has fresh material (the DVD gag was very funny) and as always the blend of humour is for all levels.

Our favourite parts were in the enchanted forest and the end of act 1 where Fairy May works her magic on Buttons (Andy gets a turn on the crane this year).

Earl's favourite part was the song clip gag involving all three.

Overall a great shared experience and a fun night out for all the family.
