The ensemble will include Charlotte Bazeley, James Bennett, Myles Brown, Samara Casteallo, Belle Kizzy Green, Sally Jayne Hind, Stevie Hutchinson, Ediz Ibrahim, Mollie McGugan, Ella Nonini, Alexanda O'Reilly, Justin Thomas, Amy Thornton, Maxwell Trengove, Charlotte Wilmott and Luke Woollaston.
Directed by Michael Harrison, the show will also feature a number of speciality acts such as illusionist Paul Hitchcock, dynamic roller-skating duo The Skating Medini, ‘Rola Bola’ act Sascha Williams and Stephanie Nock and stunt driver Peter Pavlov.
Running from 7th December for a five-week run, the show features choreography by Karen Bruce, set designs by Ian Westbrook, costume designer High Durrant, special effects by The Twins FX, lighting by Ben Cracknell, sound design by Gareth Owen and music by Gary Hind.
Pantomime returned to the legendary venue in 2016 with a production of Cinderella which starred O’Grady and Amanda Holden, and has returned every year since with Dick Whittington and last year’s production of Snow White starring Dawn French.
