And the production has sparked memories of a previous shwo 47 years ago.

Gimingham villagers are staging Cinderella-on-a-Shoestring at the village hall this weekend for three nights.

Show writer and co-director Roger Burford said: 'We aimed to stage our show for next-to-nothing, hence the title.

'But we're very grateful for sponsorship from our parish council towards meeting the cost of items that we were unable to borrow or make ourselves.

'It's been hard work but great fun too and we hope to raise a substantial sum which will go towards village hall funds.'

One spin off from the show was a picture that had come to light showing the cast of the last village panto which was directed by the Rev Garth Norman - and was also a production of Cinderella.
