RAGS to riches tale Cinderella will be coming to Redditch's Palace Theatre this Christmas.

Running from Monday, December 9 to January 5, the all-star line-up includes X Factor winner Ben Haenow taking on the role of Prince Charming and Emmerdale's Sapphire Elia will be playing the put upon heroine Cinderella.

Comedy Legend 'G' returns from a successful summer season at Cromer and having played Wishee Washee last year, he returns as ‘man of all work’ Buttons.

Cinderella’s two very ugly sisters Lav and Lou are brought frightfully to life by the Panto Award winning duo of Oliver Gray and Dean Horner.

A spokesman said this timeless tale of laughter, enchantment and true love will be packed with all the traditional pantomime ingredients, helped along with plenty of panto magic.

"Will the Prince find his mysterious princess? Will Cinders find her happy ever after? Will the Ugly Sister find a face cream that actually works?

"For all this and more grab a ball gown and make your way to the Palace Theatre for this family favourite Cinderella."
