A RHYL actress is starring in a pantomime for Easter.

Kimberly Hart-Simpson, who played Nicky Wheatley in the ITV soap opera Coronation Street, will star as Dandini in Cinderella Live: Easter Show.

Kimberly recently appeared in the E4 reality series Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion.

A spokesperson for Cinderella Live said: "This online original Live Pantomime is hosted by CBBC presenter Chris Johnson with lots of interactivity and fun.

"Cinderella Live features Coronation Street's Kimberly Hart-Simpson as Dandini alongside Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley from Harry Potter); Jessica Ellis (Hollyoaks); Irish street busking sensation Cuan Durkin; singer/actor Martin Callaghan (Portugal Got Talent Golden Buzzer 2020) and West End and television veterans Steve Fortune and Tim Churchill.

"After a hugely successful world premiere during Christmas 2020 and a viewing audience of over 200,000 people, this unique pantomime has been remastered in time for the Easter holidays and will reprise its exclusive combination of interactivity and live-streamed online performance.

"The groundbreaking production features live actors performing within virtual sets designed by the same gaming technology found in popular video games such as Fortnite.

"Cinderella Live uses interactive buttons and an opportunity to become part of the virtual audience to create an immersive and engaging live theatre experience without the theatre."
