Bonnie Lythgoe Productions, Australia’s biggest Family Musical Panto producer is proud to announce the Australian premiere launch of Cinderella – The Greatest Family Musical Panto – at the State Theatre in Sydney in July 2016.
Following on from her success as judge and producer on season one of So You Think You Can Dance USA and a judge for three seasons on So You Think You Can Dance Australia, Bonnie Lythgoe will once again be showcasing her producing and directing skills Down Under.
Executive Producer and Director, Bonnie Lythgoe said: “I’ve been in dance and theatre all my life and I’m so thrilled to be able to combine both of these once more when I bring Cinderella – The Greatest Family Musical Panto to Australia. It will prove to be bigger and more spectacular than ever! The production will have its premiere in Sydney, a town close to my heart from my time on SYTYCDA.”
“I do want to make it an annual tradition,” she says. “We have had incredible success and reviews from Snow White and Aladdin and his Wondrous Lamp. I want families to be able to come here to the State Theatre every year to see a production that kids and their grandparents and parents can all enjoy together.”
Cinderella is an updated contemporary version of the classic fairytale, in the style of a traditional British family pantomime. A panto is known for its interactive style and humour that appeals to everyone from ages 3–103! Panto takes the familiar fairytale, injects music from contemporary artists such as One Direction, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, as well as injecting current local newsworthy references into the script.
With a career spanning more than 30 years, Bonnie is an entertainment industry success story. She has worked with numerous well known entertainers throughout her career including Sir Cliff Richard, Ariana Grande, Neil Patrick Harris, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Olivia Newton-John, Kylie Minogue, Ricky Martin, The Bee Gees, Black Eyed Peas, Pink and many more.
