Queen of the dance floor Camilla Dallerup ch-ch-charms her way into the hearts of young and old in Chesterfield’s pantomime with a dazzling display that Strictly Come Dancing would be proud to show.
Her moves are elegant and polished in a sharply choreographed scene which forms the centrepiece of the palace ball in Cinderella.
Sparkling like a glitter ball the TV dance contest ace, who will join the judges on next month’s live tour of Strictly, which includes a date at Nottingham Capital FM Arena, is the most glamorous Fairy Godmother to light up the Pomegranate stage.
Co-star Asa Elliott, the singer from telly’s Benidorm, is in fine voice as the Prince, particularly in his signature song, Somewhere, from West Side Story.
Slipping into Cinderella’s fairytale, Cara Dudgeon scrubs up well as Princess Crystal, with a pretty singing voice that is able to match her looks.
Impressionist Tony Rudd, playing Buttons, hits a winning stride with his ‘ay up mi duck’ catchphrase in Donald Duck speak.
The big-haired, high-heeled Ugly Sisters are played in fine comic form by Oliver Gray and Dean Horne.
It’s a little bit of a let-down that there’s no real ponies to draw Cinders’ carriage- but snow is guaranteed until January 4 at the Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield.
