FOR drama school graduate Emily Reaney it was the best of Christmas presents when she landed a part in the Lyceum panto which has brought her back to her home city.

The 20-year-old from Millhouses is one of the six young professionals who make up the ensemble of villagers in Cinderella starring Sue Devaney, Jonathan Ansell and Ben Faulks.

“Last year I was in panto in Catford which was good because I live in South London but this is a much more professional production and it’s pretty demanding, although it’s also been good fun,” she says, “It’s like a different show each night.” With the adlibbing of funny man Damian Williams anything can happen, but Buttons couldn’t be blamed for an unexpected incident which brought the house down the other night as Williams and co were dumped on the floor when a bench collapsed just as Emily was about to make her entrance disguised as a ghost. “That’s usually the best part of the show for me, that made it even better,” she laughs.
