Carrying On in Panto in 2017!


It's almost that time of year again, oh yes it is! I'm sorry to be blogging about panto in October as it brings all things Christmas that little bit closer but now's the time to book your tickets if you want to see one of your Carry On favourites treading the boards this festive season.

First up is Coronation Street and Carry On actress Sherrie Hewson who will be starring in the Theatre Royal Nottingham's production of Beauty and the Beast. The show will run from Saturday 9 December until Sunday 14 January 2018. Nottingham’s own Sherrie Hewson will lead the cast as Mrs Potty having previous presented Loose Women and appeared on Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Crossroads and the Carry On films.  She also released her first novel The Tannery and her best-selling autobiography Behind the Laughter before leaving Loose Women in 2016.

Beauty and the Beast’s executive producer Jonathan Kiley said: “We’re very much looking forward to bringing the magic of Beauty and the Beast to the Theatre Royal Nottingham this year. To have the wonderful Sherrie, and the hilarious Andrew and Ben, leading our cast; we know this year’s production is a must see show.”

Next up is the ever popular Robin Askwith who will be starring in Jack and The Beanstalk at the Cliffs Pavilion, Southend-On-Sea. With a spectacular 3D sequence transporting audiences to the Giant's magical kingdom, larger-than-life special effects, huge laughs, magnificent musical numbers and lashings of audience participation, Essex's own Lee Mead and Stacey Solomon, together with comedian Bobby Davro and actor Robin Askwith will deliver another spectacular Southend pantomime of giant proportions.

Get your tickets now to be sure of joining in the fun. With only a three-week season, to delay could be a giant mistake! The show will run from Saturday 16 December until Sunday 7 January 2018. You can buy tickets here


And finally, the evergreen Anita Harris will be starring in a production of Snow White at the Kings Theatre, Portsmouth. Magic Mirror in my hand which is the fairest pantomime in the land? Why, Snow White at the Kings Theatre of course!  

Join us for traditional family pantomime fun with Snow White, her charming Prince, the Wicked Queen and 7 dependable dwarfs with lavish sets, wonderful costumes, a surprise or two and all the cheers, jokes and jeers you would expect.
