Could you be Cinderella’s Prince Charming? Hackney Players hunt for romantic lead role

The “shoe is on the other foot” for one unlucky ‘Cinderella’ this panto season - who is being forced to hunt down her Prince Charming.
If amateur dramatics group The Hackney Players do not cast the romantic lead role for their Christmas production, Cinderella may not go to the ball.
Pantomime director, Mary Frendo, said: “Rehearsals are already well underway but we had no one available to play Prince Charming. It seems the shoe is on the other foot as poor Cinderella is left searching for her perfect partner.
“It’s a fantastic role with lots of singing and dancing so we hope to find someone soon so we can start selling tickets.”
The Players put on a panto every January at Morland Community Hall in Gayhurst Road, London Fields.
