Epstein Entertainments Ltd announce details of their debut panto production coming to the Epstein Theatre this Christmas.

Audiences are guaranteed to have a ball when the greatest rags to riches tale, Cinderella, runs from Friday December 6 2019 to Sunday January 5 2020, and tickets are on sale now.

Epstein Entertainments Ltd is a joint venture between Bill Elms from Bill Elms Associates and the duo of Chantelle Nolan and Jane Joseph from Regal Entertainments Ltd.

Having worked collaboratively over the last three years touring panto productions to various theatres across the North West including the Epstein Theatre, Southport Theatre, Stockport Plaza and Rhyl Pavilion, this new partnership will see them produce annual panto productions for the Epstein Theatre.

As one of the region’s premier production companies, Regal Entertainments (formerly Crown Productions) already have a long-standing history with the Hanover Street venue, with company director Jane Joseph previously producing the annual panto in its former life as the Neptune Theatre.

The year 2019 marks a landmark anniversary for Regal Entertainments as they celebrate 25 years of bringing star-studded productions to the region, with their very first pantomime Aladdin opening at the Neptune in 1994.

Epstein Entertainments’ debut production at the venue promises to be a festive extravaganza, with producers due to announce the star-studded cast in the coming weeks.

Chantelle Nolan commented: “We are absolutely delighted to be delivering the annual Christmas panto at the Epstein Theatre. It is where our journey began 25 years ago, with my mum producing her very first show here when it was the Neptune Theatre. We have big plans for Cinderella this year, and although I can’t give too much away at the moment, there will be some big announcements for the show in the coming weeks. Audiences are in for a real treat!”

Cinderella tells the story of a beautiful girl who is reduced to a life of servitude by her two ugly step-sisters. That is all set to change when an invitation to a grand ball at the palace arrives. With a bit of magic and some help from her friend Buttons, Cinderella is transformed in to the belle of the ball. But what will happen at the stroke of midnight?

Enchanted pumpkins, glass slippers, a sparkling fairy-tale carriage – Epstein Entertainments’ version of this classic tale has something for the whole family. Be sure to book your tickets early and get ready to be whisked off to the most lavish panto in all the land.

Cinderella runs at the Epstein Theatre from Friday December 6 2019 to Sunday January 5 2020. To buy tickets, visit https://www.epsteinliverpool.co.uk/events/cinderella-2/ or call 0844 888 4411.
