Panto at Bury St Edmunds


Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is delighted to reveal the first confirmed members of the professional cast of this year’s pantomime Peter Pan, as well as kicking off the search for applicants to join the Young Chorus alongside them (Fri 29 Nov ’19 – Sun 19 Jan ’20).
Firstly, returning for the third year in a row, Chris Clarkson will be playing this year’s dame, the gorgeous and outrageous Tiger Lily. Chris has become a firm audience favourite following his performances as Nanny Fanny in Sleeping Beauty and Dame Winona in Dick Whittington, it’s such a pleasure to have him back with us this year. Also returning following his hilarious performance as the smelly kitchen boy Grub in Sleeping Beauty, Oliver Mawdsley is back to play ex-pirate Smee; and playing Wendy Darling is Jasmine Hackett, who is back with us following her outstanding performance as Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty.
In the title role of Peter Pan, we are delighted to welcome Lauren Chinery to Theatre Royal for the first time, Lauren’s recent credits include Miss Nightingale (Hippodrome Casino), Beauty and the Beast (CAST Doncaster) and Dreamboats and Petticoats (UK tour); and lastly playing the fearsome Captain Hook is one more returning cast member, Alan Mehdizadeh who will be remembered by local audiences for playing Ghastly Gordon in Jack and the Beanstalk. Further casting announcements will follow.
Peter Pan is a traditional family pantomime produced by Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, directed by Karen Simpson and Marcus Romer, the Choreographer is Jess Ellen and the Musical Director is Ward Baker. The pantomime is sponsored by Taylor Wimpey, and the Theatre Royal are very grateful for their support.
