Tickets are now on sale and are selling fast with almost all schools performances sold out…
This year we are performing at The Exchange in North Shields. A fabulous hidden gem in the heart of the town. This hilarious family production is written and directed by North East actor, singer and director Dale Meeks. Dale has maintained the tradition of Panto coupled with popular songs and of course a messy scene for the kids, which will guarantee to get the audience participating and singing along.
This year’s show looks set to be one of the best to date. They have a fantastic cast and magical costumes all designed and made by Charmain Hamilton.
Once again, the company has teamed up with Newcastle West End Foodbank, providing their clients the opportunity to experience the magic of panto. Alongside the Food bank we welcome ENGIE. ENGIE is supporting family's in the Tyne Wear area and enabling them to see the panto at The Exchange this Christmas.
Producer Danielle Mendes welcomes their third Panto. ‘My aim was and is always to make Panto affordable for all. ENGIE endeavours to help balance performance with responsibility, enabling progress in a harmonious way. To have this association with a company that has the same ethos as us, is a perfect match’
Our Choreographer this year is Jo–Anne Torre owner of Decote Dance school in Whitley Bay, who are thrilled to be part of this production.
Janine Leigh is a London actress, originally from Jarrow returns for her third panto playing Dandini.
Jayne McKenzie appears as the Fairy Godmother. Lucy Walton as the Prince and Lucy Curry as Cinderella. The hilarious Craig Richardson playing Buttons and Steven Stobbs will be one of the Ugly Sisters, both lads are well known in South Tyneside for performing in panto.
Michael Geddes will be Barron Hard-up whilst Paul Martin is playing one on the Ugly Sisters. Paul is returning to his native North East from Majorca especially for this production.
Company Manager Alison Franklin is excited for this year not only because it’s in a fabulous venue but the cast will be performing the amazingly funny 12 Day’s of Christmas.
