From the Dorking Advertiser, 17th February 2011:-

An enthusiastic Ockley Dramatic Society performed Stephen Duckham's "Cinderella" at Ockley village hall.

The amateur dramatic society told the tale of Baron Hardup, his ugly step daughters, aptly named Gorgon and Zola, the beautifil Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother.

Upbeat music directed by Jane Charman and talented choreography involved the audience from the start.

Choreographers Angela Tarratt, Jane Waugh and Rebecca Peters did a fantastic job with the young dancers. The choreograohy was clever, funny and complemented the upbeat soundtrack.

Directed by Jo Bickmore, this anateur performance was brought to life by some characters in particular.

Steve Martin, as the fairy godmother, recovered well after a couple of memory blips and his wicked sense of humour saved the day. His final song shawed remarkable talent fitting in so many words into one redition.

Cinderella, played by Hayley Irwin, was a delicate partrayal by the young girl. Hayley came into her throughout the performance and the audience clearly adored her.

The two ugly sisters were played with gusto by Sally Thornton and Annie Walker. A particular highlight was the performance of "Anything you can do I can do better" which had the audience in fits of laughter.

But it was the children who brought the pantomime to life and the audience fully appreciated their efforts.
