Cinderella

I had the Time of my Life!

Deal beware the ugly sisters of Cinderella! My evening in the Kilshawe Theatre in Deal for The Guild Players’ innovative and funny adaptation of Cinderella started with a warm welcome.  Buttons (Lee Ralph) was charming singing Take That’s Shine for Cinderella. He was oblivious to the woodland creatures dancing behind him (the dance troupe, aged nine to 12), one of the many comical moments. The deep-voiced, tattooed ugly sisters, Trinny and Susannah, played zealously by Mike Rivarno and Jez Anderson, loved shopping and bullying Cinderella. The ball, where the handsome prince (Mat Sims) hoped to find a wife, ended to (I’ve Had) the Time of My Life. Buttons leapt from the stage and the dance troupe joined him for a pastiche of Dirty Dancing. At the fitting of the glass slipper, the dim-witted Baron Hardup (Duncan Currie) finally lost his temper with the ugly sisters. The songs, accompanied by Richard McPherson on piano, were hand-clappingly cheerful. Reflection was beautifully sung by Erin Pinfold, aged 10. The costumes and set were vibrant, plentiful and believable.
