It may be the middle of summer but Swindon’s Wyvern Theatre have announced that Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas will make his pantomime debut in the role of Prince Charming in this year’s spectacular, Cinderella which opens on Saturday 10 December 2016.
Salford-born Ryan burst onto television screens on Christmas Day in 2000 in the role of Jason Grimshaw in the iconic ITV soap Coronation Street, a role he has played for over 16 years. Best known for romantic entanglements, Ryan left Weatherfield last month in an emotional departure following the death of his on-screen father.
Cinderella marks Ryan’s pantomime debut where he will star as Prince Charming alongside Swindon favourite David Ashley who plays one of the Ugly Sisters. For his fifth consecutive Wyvern panto David will be joined by Louie Westwood in the role of the other Ugly Sister, and Victoria Farley as Cinderella.
The enchanting tale of Cinderella will be brought to life at the Wyvern Theatre from Saturday 10 December – Sunday 8 January.
Book your seats today before the clock strikes midnight.
