It may only be February – but Weymouth's Christmas pantomime is already starting to take shape.

The panto at Weymouth Pavilion will be a theatrical rendition of the classic tale Cinderella.

A casting announcement has been made in relation to the performance, with Luke Attwood and Brandon Nicholson set to play the hilarious ugly step sisters in the show.

Luke and Brandon were hugely popular stars of the latest series of E4's hit show Coach Trip.

Mr Attwood tweeted his delight: "So excited to be heading to the beautiful; Weymouth Pavilion in Cinderella this year."

Mr Nicholson said: "So ready to take on Weymouth! Is it bad to be looking forward to December in February?"

Weymouth Pavilion has warned people to book their seats soon because tickets have been selling faster than ever for this year's Christmas pantomime.

The Pavilion said: "Soon, not even your Fairy Godmother will be able to get you to the ball."

The pantomime will be at the Pavilion from Saturday, December 14 to Tuesday, December 31.

Contact the venue for tickets.

Further casting announcements are expected soon.
