Cinderella, starring Didi Conn


Didi Conn is The One That Brid Wants as Grease Legend Stars in Panto. Didi will be making her pantomime debut as Cinderella's magical Fairy Godmother as she swaps her hometown of New York for the beautiful shores of Bridlington.

A Paul Holman Associates Production

You're all invited to the Ball!

Starring Grease legend Didi Conn headlining as the Fairy Godmother, Didi is joined by John Lyons from A Touch of Frost fame

Known worldwide as the loveable Beauty School Dropout, Frenchy, Didi burst onto screens as the Pink Lady, with even pinker hair, in the iconic 1978 movie musical Grease, voted no.1 in Channel 4's 100 Greatest Film Musicals.

Didi is the only original cast member to have appeared in all three incarnations of Grease, reprising her role as Frenchy in follow-up movie Grease 2 and coming full circle to make a touching cameo in the diner of 2016's Live TV adaptation as Vi, giving sage advice to Carly Rae Jepsen's Frenchy.

Away from Rydell High, Didi is fondly remembered as the bubbly Manager of Shining Time Station, Stacy Jones; a role she played for six years with the character also appearing in crossover feature film Thomas and the Magic Railroad. She also leant her inimitable voice to the role of Raggedy Ann for the animated movie Raggedy Ann and Andy: A Musical Adventure.

Having continued an illustrious stage and screen career, Didi was most recently seen on UK TV screens as a contestant on ITV's hugely popular Dancing on Ice. At the age of 67, Didi was the oldest competitor in the show's history. She delighted audiences when she donned her original Pink Ladies jacket to skate to We Go Together, still sporting a mustard stain picked up whilst filming the movie's famous drive-in scene. Alongside her partner, professional ice skater Lukasz Rozycki, she made it to week four of the competition impressing the judges and viewers alike with her infectious personality, boundless energy and incomparable showmanship.

With one charming Prince, two Ugly Sisters and a huge sprinkling of Fairy Godmother magic, join us this Christmas to find out if the glass slipper fits and if Cinderella will make it to the ball and back again before midnight in this classic rags to riches tale that proves that dreams really do come true.

Featuring breathtaking special effects, spectacular scenery and sparkling costumes along with plenty of traditional pantomime mayhem, laughter and chances for you to join in the fun... the clock is ticking to Bridlington's most magical pantomime yet!

John Lyons who appeared as Detective Sergeant George Toolan in the long running popular ITV series A Touch of Frost will also be returning to star as Baron Hardup.
