A panto treat at The Cresset

The Cresset Theatre and Premier Pantomimes are delighted to announce a star line up for their spectacular family pantomime Snow White. With all the magic and spectacle audiences expect from panto, it promises to be another hit production

Kevin played perennial favourite and ‘sex symbol’ Curly Watts in the soap for an incredible 20 years. Since then he has worked extensively in theatre and TV, as well as enjoying a successful music career. And he’s no stranger to pantomime, having performed in many productions over the years. In the role of Prince Florizel is Mitch Hewer, who regular panto-goers will recognise from the title role in Aladdin at The Cresset in 2014. Mitch got his big break on Channel 4’s Skins, as fan favourite Maxxie and since his last visit to Peterborough he has appeared as Mickey Ellisson in BBC’s Casualty. He’s looking forward to returning to panto, and to Peterborough, having thoroughly enjoyed his previous experience at The Cresset.

Cresset audience favourite and Peterborough’s favourite Dame Zach Vanderfelt promises to deliver a sweet performance this year as the outrageous Madam Bonbon, full of sugar and spice and all things nice! Also returning is Cresset panto veteran Peter McCrohon, a man of many roles! After a wonderful Cresset debut as Wendy in last year’s production of Peter Pan, Victoria Jane is thrilled to be back in Peterborough as Snow White. Victoria is a professional singer, actress and presenter, and has even appeared in CBeebies’ Teletubbies!

Performing alongside the professional cast are a team of talented local youngsters, selected from over a hundred hopefuls at open auditions earlier this year. Writer and Director Stuart Morrison has been involved with Cresset pantomimes for many years, and also directed the best-selling production of Peter Pan in 2016. This year he promises will yet again bring the wow factor: ‘Snow White’s a classic pantomime, and we’re making sure to include all the traditional elements that people love, but we’ve added some great song and dance routines, loads of laughs, plenty of audience participation, and you can expect a few surprises along the way too!’

The Cresset this year are delighted to be working with The Dragonfly Hotel at Thorpe Meadows who are kindly sponsoring the pantomime. Panto-goers looking for overnight accommodation when they visit The Cresset can benefit from a 10% room discount when booking. Snow White is produced by Premier Pantomimes, who have been producing top quality productions at The Cresset since 2008 and can’t wait to add their special family pantomime magic to this classic tale.
