Cinderella at Swansea Grand Theatre surpasses expectations

Ticket sales at Swansea’s main pantomime were up on last season.

More than 37,000 people enjoyed the Cinderella at Swansea Grand Theatre which is run by Swansea Council.

Cinderella starred Samantha Thomas in the title role, AJ and Curtis Pritchard, Matt Edwards, Kev Johns and Stefan Pejic. It ran at the Grand from December 9 to January 7.

It was a centrepiece of Swansea Christmas which also featured Waterfront Winterland, and the Christmas parade and market which all helped citizens and visitors enjoy the city centre across the holiday season.

Council cabinet member Elliott King said: “Audience reactions to Cinderella were incredible; there were hundreds of extremely positive comments on social media and lots of repeat attenders.”

Grand manager Grant McFarlane said: We’re thrilled with the increased audience numbers. Everybody who attended Cinderella had a ball.”

Panto for 2024-25 will be Jack and the Beanstalk, with comedy duo Kev Johns and Matt Edwards returning.

Tickets are on sale now.
