Okay. So I thought I could maybe create a bit of fun here. I do not know if this has been done before or something similar has occurred previously on here. Either way, here we go...

So, hypothetically speaking, there appears to be a gap in the calendar for the London Palladium to host an all-star Pantomime over the Christmas period. It is Cinderella and you wonderful people of the forum are the casting directors. The roles are...

Cinderella
Buttons
Baron Hardup
Ugly Sister One
Ugly Sister Two
The Fairy Godmother
Prince Charming
Dandini

So without further a do, who would you cast in the above roles?

The BALL is in your court! (Pardon the slight pun...)
The Curious Incident of The Dog in The Night-Time (West End, 2013) The Same Deep Water As Me (Donmar Warehouse, 2013) Charlie and The Chocolate Factory (West End, 2013) The Pride (Trafalgar Studios, 2013) Mojo (West End, 2013)
Blood Brothers (UK Tour, 2013) Sister Act (UK Tour, 2013) Cats (UK Tour, 2013)

Upcoming:

Birdland (Royal Court, 2014) Skylight (West End, 2014) Let The Right One In (West End, 2014) One Man Two Guvnors (UK Tour, 2014) Barnum (UK Tour, 2014)

Derek Jacobi is a great call for Baron Hardup!

I once saw Dora Bryan as a Fairy Godmother, who was fabulous in the role needless to say!

Are you all being sarcastic? Imagine how good my life was five minutes ago when Oli Murs did not exist

I'm afraid there isn't a gap in the calendar at the Palladium. The Dame Edna tour is in from Nov to Jan.
