LOUIE SPENCE

Television and stage star Louie Spence will lead the cast of this year’s spectacular family pantomime Cinderella from Sat 9 – Sun 31 December.

In addition to his television experience Louie has enjoyed an extensive stage career appearing in Miss Saigon and Cats and danced alongside Take That and the Spice Girls. Louie will play The Prince’s loyal manservant, Dandini. No stranger to pantomime, Cinderella marks his eighth foray into the genre, bringing with him the high kicks and high jinks he’s best known for.

 

MICHELLE COLLINS

Much-loved actress Michelle Collins joins Louie as the Wicked Stepmother.
 
Michelle made her television debut alongside Gary Oldman in Morgan’s Boy before going on to appear in numerous primetime programmes including Real Women, Sunburn, The Sleeper, Two Thousand Acres of Skye, the Emmy and BAFTA award-winning The Illustrated Mum and Doctor Who. Michelle also appeared in the feature films Personal Services opposite Julie Walters, Empire State and Stephen Poliakoff’s Hidden City.
 
Having been spotted on television by BBC producers Michelle was asked to audition for the popular soap EastEnders and won the role of Cindy Beale, originally intended to appear in just eleven episodes. Michelle’s portrayal quickly proved popular with soap executives and viewers alike and played the role of the villainous, seral-adulterer for over ten years, an integral character to numerous high-profile storylines cementing her reputation as one of the UK’s best-loved actresses.

Since leaving EastEnders Michelle swapped the Queen Vic for a different pub, to take up her role as Stella Rice, landlady of Coronation Street’s infamous Rovers Return. Michelle played the role for over two years before appearing in Casualty in a guest-starring role, Death in Paradise and Midsomer Murders.  Most recently Michelle starred in the BAFTA award winning CBBC show The Dumping Ground.
