This year’s production is quite a family affair, as four members of the Hildreth family are involved on and off stage.

Five members of the Ross family are also taking part, further adding to the family fun aspect.

There are also a number of mothers and daughters who will be appearing side by side, as well as a husband and wife duo.

A spokesman said: “Go along with Buttons and Cinderella as they journey along together, meet Cinders’ new stepmother and sisters, and get an invite to Prince Charming’s ball.

“Will the bungling builders, Bodget, Blaggit and Leggett succeed in the repossession and renovation of Hardship Hall?

“With both Buttons and Prince Charming in love with Cinderella, who will win her heart?

“Will her stepsisters and stepmother’s sabotage prevent her from attending the Prince’s Ball? Will Fairy G be able to magic her a happy ending?”
