COWDENBEATH Community Theatre will be welcoming Cinderella to the Lochgelly Centre stage this December.

Get ready to "oh no you won't" through the timeless tale of a young girl living in forsaken circumstances whose life is suddenly changed to remarkable fortune by her ascension to the throne by marriage as the Community Theatre celebrates their 20th panto!

The company was founded in 2001 by Alex Wallace, Harry Wood, Alan Boniface, Alex Keatings, Mungo Syme and Evelyn Irvine to provide local kids with an opportunity to get involved in theatre.

The very first show was Cinderella, using a script written by co-founder, Alex Wallace.

Now, 20 years later, they are returning to that script. Updated and extended by producer Melissa Davidson, this show will show just how far the company has come.

Several generations of local kids have taken part in their shows, with some of them even returning for adult roles and to work on the production team.

Join them as they explore the story of Cinderella, who is living with her stepmother, the infamous Nellie of Cowdengelly and two stepsisters, Daphne and Senga who are particularly unkind to Cinderella.

When the Prince arrives home from travelling the world, his father, King Charles organises a ball so that the Prince can find himself a bride.

Cinderella longs to go to the ball but has only tatty clothes and no means of getting there, not to mention a long list of chores to complete.

However, all is not lost, when Cinderella's Fairy Godmother arrives and with a swish of her wand and some magic spells, Cinderella's tatty clothes are transformed into a beautiful ballgown with crystal slippers.

But she's warned that she must be home by midnight when the spell will end.

To find out if Cinderella's dreams come true, head along to one of the Community Theatre's performances.

The show will run from Wednesday, December 6 to Saturday, December 9, nightly at 7.15pm, with a matinee on the Saturday at 2.15pm.

The performance on the opening night is a relaxed performance, suitable for those who might normally find coming to the theatre a daunting experience. Relaxed performances typically do not feature pyrotechnics or explosions and the audio volume may be reduced. The lights in the auditorium may remain on during the show, and customers can come and go as their needs demand.

Tickets are just £10 as a way to give back to the community through these tough times and can be purchased from all OnFife box offices with no booking fee or online from the OnFife website.
