Ferneham Hall are very pleased to announce that CBBC’s Ed Petrie joins the cast of Cinderella in Fareham this year as Buttons.
Ed’s best known for presenting the RTS nominated Marrying Mum and Dad and the BAFTA nominated All Over the Place – both on CBBC – as well as with his time on-screen cactus sidekick on Ed and Oucho’s Excellent Adventure and his other pal, Hacker T Dog, on Hacker Time.
He trained with the National Youth Theatre and later at Goldsmith’s College, London and started performing life as a stand-up comedian before moving into acting and then onto presenting – he received a BAFTA for Best Children’s Presenter in 2008.
As well as his television work Ed has enjoyed taking part in a number of pantomimes around the country and is looking forward to Christmas in Fareham this year:
Having grown up on the south coast I’m super excited to be within sniffing distance of the English Channel this Christmas and have heard great things about Ferneham Hall’s pantos. Buttons has to be my all-time favourite panto character, relentlessly cheerful despite the fact that Cinderella has totally friend-zoned him. Can’t wait till December!
This years marks the 10th anniversary of Jordan Productions pantomimes at Ferneham Hall and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than a sparkling Royal Ball. You don’t need an invitation to be there – tickets are on sale now and selling faster than Cinderella on her way home when the clock strikes midnight. Don’t miss this night to remember – book now at www.fernehamhall.co.uk or call the box office on 01329 231942 – we know you’ll have a Ball!
