Kids entertainer Dave Benson Philips set to star in Mansfield Palace Theatre panto Cinderella


CHILDREN’S entertainer Dave Benson Philips has been revealed as one of the stars of Mansfield’s Palace Theatre’s pantomime Cinderella.

A fortnight ago, we reported that Hi-De-Hi actress Ruth Madoc would star as the Fairy Godmother in the festive show.

Dave will appear as everyone’s favourite loveable friend Buttons.

He said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be back in Mansfield again this Christmas.

“I’m looking forward to bringing you all some really lovely fun and silliness. It’s going to be a seriously good show this year.”

Cultural Services Manager Andrew Tucker said: “We really do have a superb cast this year. We know that Ruth Madoc will be adored by all the Hi-De-Hi fans out there and Dave Benson Philips has his own family following.”

• Cinderella opens on 30th November and runs until 5th January. For details call Mansfield 633133.
