From the cobbles of Coronation Street to the shores of Blackpool, Vicky Entwistle is set to join the cast at the Blackpool Grand Theatre for this year’s much-anticipated Blackpool pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
It’s 10 years since Vicky last performed at the iconic Grand Theatre Blackpool Pantomime where she is reviving her former role as the Wicked Queen once again.
A Grand Blackpool Pantomime
Vicky will join panto legend and Britain’s Got Talent finalist, Steve Royle for his annual performance at the theatre playing ‘Muddles’ in the most wicked of pantomimes produced by Martin Dodd of UK Productions.
Set to take panto season by storm, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has incredible sets and costumes and is jam-packed with laughs and family-interaction which really is one the family can’t afford to miss!
Commenting on her return to the seaside resort, Vicky said: “It’s been a decade since I last appeared at Blackpool Grand Theatre and I can’t wait to take to the stage there once more! It’s a simply stunning venue and the crowds always get into the true spirit of pantomime so after being off stage for so long now, I am really excited to be back and shouting ‘Mirror, Mirror on the wall’ in one of my all-time favourite pantomime villain roles.”
The spectacular, fun-packed family pantomime will open its curtain on Friday, 3 December with 51 show-stopping performances running throughout December and the first week of January.
Martin Dodd, Producer at UK Productions Ltd, who work in collaboration with the Grand to bring the pantomime together said: “After a challenging year in theatre, we are just delighted to be back with a panto that goes from strength to strength, which is testament to the great cast, creative team and fantastic partnership with the Grand Theatre and of course the beautiful Grand Theatre itself.
“We are hoping that, as usual, the pantomime will attract family audiences and schools from far and wide as we promise to bring you a laugh out loud pantomime performance leaving you ‘happy’ not ‘grumpy’ at the end.”
Ruth Eastwood, CEO of the Grand Theatre added: “Pantomime is one of the truly locally celebrated events that we are able to offer the people of Blackpool, Wyre, and Fylde. Working with Martin Dodd and his creative team we make a show with locals in its heart and mind and the continuing and increasing support of our audiences must mean we are getting something right.”
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs promises to be another UK Productions pantomime packed with incredible magic, musical hits, but above all huge laughs! It’s fun for all the family. A laugh-a-minute extravaganza, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs features stunning sets, fabulous costumes and one very poisonous apple!
