Pattaya Players announces dates for Christmas Panto


The Pattaya Players (home of Pattaya’s professional amateurs) are gearing up for their second-annual Christmas Pantomime production of “Cinderella” on November 25th-26th, December 1st, 3rd & 4th and December 9th-10th.

This production will feature free admittance to the show as a “thank you” for all the support and dedication audience members have shown during the last four years of the Pattaya Players’ existence.  Tickets are not necessary.  Some venues are offering food and drink specials and should be contacted directly for reservations, however those venues with no menu option will not accept advance reservations.

Due to the popularity of the Pattaya Pantos, seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis, so you are encouraged to arrive early!

“Cinderella” is a British Panto classic that follows the hard-knock times of the daughter of recently deceased Baron Hardup.  Poor Cinderella (Cailin Terhaar) is dominated by her wicked stepmother Baroness Hardup (Eileen Denning) and her 2 daughters, the ugly sisters (Mike Pence & Nick Lewis).  Only a handsome Prince (Jason Rupp), her good friend and family man-servant Buttons (Christopher Parsons) and the magical prowess of her Fairy Godmother (Sue Farrell) can save the day!

Pattaya Players are delighted that this script was written (and adapted especially for Pattaya) by their very own untapped author, Ray Lightbown and skillfully directed by Panto-favorite, Wendy Khan.
