CBeebies' Katy Ashworth to star in Cinderella

Posted on

We are delighted to announce that Katy Ashworth from CBeebies has been cast as the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella, alongside Keith Chegwin who has already been announced as Buttons.

Katy is a well-known and loved face to thousands of children and their families across the UK. Her warmth, likability, infectious energy and innate connection with younger generations has given her a successful career in children’s television presenting, live entertaining and children’s writing.

She is best known presenting on the BAFTA award winning TV channel CBeebies on which she also presents one of the flagship series I Can Cook. Katy is an accomplished actress, entertainer and singer. She has taken the lead in several pantomimes, performed in front of 8000 people at Wembley on the CBeebies live tours, presented live I Can Cook shows in Butlins resorts, has performed her live one woman interactive show for children at hundreds of theatres, festivals and other events in the UK and internationally, and is currently singing with a 12 piece soul band for kids!

Producer Martin Dodd, for UK Productions, said “Cinderella is the most magical of pantomimes and everybody’s favourite. I am delighted with the line-up this year and I know that Cheggers and Katy will bring loads of fun and comedy to the show, not to mention boundless energy! We can promise something for everyone with the wickedest (but best dressed) Ugly Sisters in the business and the sensational Shetland Ponies live on stage.”

Cinderella, at The Anvil, will run from Thursday 11 December 2013 to Sunday 4 January 2014.
