Charles Court Opera are to return to the King’s Head Theatre for their 12th dazzling, delightful and downright hilarious boutique pantomime - a brand new production of one of the company’s greatest hits, Buttons: A Cinderella Story.
Buttons, a co-production with the King’s Head Theatre, takes Cinderella, one of the best-loved fairytales of all time, and turns it on its pretty little head... From a villainous Prince to a Fairy Godfather, this delicious reimagining is given extra dashes of Christmas spice, with more
double entendres than you can shake your tutu at, making their twisted version of the story even more outrageous, sprinkled with an extra special helping of CCO mischief.
Featuring John Savournin as a ludicrously tall Dame along with all your favourite characters, this fabulous festive treat is set to be the highlight of London’s seasonal calendar. Prepare for a cheeky concoction of toe-tapping musical numbers, side-splitting puns and jaw-dropping magic that’ll fill you with Christmas cheer into the New Year and beyond.
The cast will also include CCO favourite Matthew Kellett as the loveable Buttons, with Eleanor Sanderson-Nash, Jennie Jacobs Catrine Kirkman and Emily Cairns.
Buttons will run from Friday 23 November, 2018 - Saturday 5 January, 2019.
Press night is Tuesday 27 November at 7.00pm
From Adult Only performances through to Children’s Matinees, Charles Court Opera’s biggest and best pantomime yet is perfect for families, couples, groups of friends and office parties. Don’t miss out on the ultimate Christmas cracker of a show!
John Savournin said: “We’ve taken the story of Cinderella as we know it and turned it completely on it’s head, filling it with cheeky surprises
and juicy twists in an original take on the fairytale, which places Buttons at it’s centre.”
“Charmingly eccentric as ever... Charles Court Opera’s rollicking, festive panto ticks all the
right boxes, filled with shambolic fun, bawdy humour and rousing musical numbers.” Time Out
