Brian Conley

Milton Keynes Theatre has announced that television and musical theatre star Brian Conley will appear in this year’s family pantomime, Cinderella, in the role of Buttons.

Cinderella is confirmed to run at Milton Keynes Theatre from 9th December until 14th January.

Audiences will join Cinders in this famous rags to riches story as she outwits her ugly sisters, and, with the help of her best friend Buttons and one magical fairy godmother, wins the heart of the dashing Prince Charming.

Cinderella will feature all the ingredients of a typical Christmas pantomime; groups can expect laugh-out-loud comedy, colourful scenery and special effects, and plenty of boos and hisses.

Tickets are on sale now and group rates are also available. Group travel organisers should call 0333-0095393 to make a booking.
