Sinderella Review: Outrageously filthy and fun, not for the prudish

A panto is an incredible experience – an adult panto is a whole new realm.

Welcome to a world where you are actively encouraged to yell “f**k off” at characters on stage, and the beautiful, wholesome Disney princess on stage is spoken about in such a sexually graphic way it makes your eyes water.

Joe Purdy’s Sinderella brings together some of the biggest stars of the drag world – Stacey Layne Matthews – star of Ru Paul’s Drag Race Season 3, and Divina De Campo, star of Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK Season 1.

Stacey brings her southern charm to the role of the Fairy Drag Henny, while Divina slays as the evil stepmother – and without spoiling the surprise, fans of Drag Race UK will be VERY happy about one of the songs.

The stand out star is lovable Geordie David Hopper who plays the vulgar yet endearing Buttons with vim and the on-stage banter with the audience that you would expect from a stand-up comic.

The beautiful Cinderella, played by Julie Hutchison-Alberts, maintains the only innocent aspect of the show which contrasts beautifully against her hilariously rotten ugly stepsisters, played by Jamie Campbell (who inspired Everybody’s Talking About Jamie) and Troy Harris.

Meanwhile David Potts, star of Ibiza Weekender, is a mischievous Dandini alongside handsome Prince Charming and BGT finalist Rob King, whose vocal talents bring an astonishing level of decorum rather unexpectedly.

You’ll be singing, dancing, laughing and cringing during this belter of show, just bear in mind it’s not for the faint-hearted or easily offended.

So for a bawdy, rip-roaring singalong and a night of gay abandon – get yourself a ticket to Sinderella.
