November 13, 2013


AHUGE hit with last year's Hall For Cornwall pantomime audiences, Granville Saxton and Dean Nolan return to star in this year's show - the magical fairytale Cinderella.

The two actors went down a storm last year, helping to make the show one of the most memorable and funniest pantos ever seen on the HFC stage. Granville, who previously thrilled audiences with his fiendishly comical Abanazer, is back this time as an equally wicked ugly sister. As well as starring as a villainous Death Eater in the final two Harry Potter films, Granville has also appeared in numerous stage, television and film roles such as Our Friends In The North, Poirot , Shine On Harvey Moon, Harem, If Tomorrow Comes, Yanks, The Emissary and the Disney film Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie.

Much-loved Cornish actor Dean Theatre moving on to appear in many stage productions, including Bill Kenwright's Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and starring in Kneehigh Theatre's Steptoe And Son. Television and film appearances include the BBC's Ashes To Ashes and oregion's weekend. Dean is also coartistic director of Cornwall's BishBashBosh Productions, recently renamed Trebiggan Productions.

Also back are two other familiar faces - Suzanne Ahmet is to star as Cinderella, with slapstick favourite Daniel Cane donning a frock as the other ugly sister. Suzanne's previous television credits include television appearances in Jonathan Creek and The Judas Tree, while Daniel's many stage appearances include Little Me, A Little Night Music and The Cole Porter Songbook.

Joining the HFC cast for the first time will be well-known actress Joanna Munro as the Fairy Godmother. Joanna's many previous roles include starring in the BBC drama Angels, Dr Who and as a presenter on Esther Rantzen's That's Life. Recently she has been appearing in Mamma Mia! in London's West End and on tour.

Adding an exotic element to the mix is handsome Swedish actor Andreas Gyllander as dashing Prince Charming. Andreas has most recently been seen starring, alongside Joanna, as Sky in Mamma Mia! in London's West End. Also appearing is Stuart Maciver, recently seen at HFC in Evita, as Dandini and Stan Pretty as Baron Hardup. Cinderella will be at Hall For Cornwall from Sunday, December 15, to Saturday, January 11 - with matinee and evening performances available. See for ticket and performance details.
