The Burnham and District Pantomime group will perform their 50th show, Cinderella, next week.

Bullying and treachery cannot stand in the way of true love in this well-known story.

The heroine Cinderella goes from domestic drudge to pampered princess with a wave of her Fairy Godmother’s wand.

But there is still a long way to go to get Cinderella to the ball and dancing in the arms with Prince Charming.
