For so many of our subscribers, the annual pantomime season is a pivotal part of their working year. Some performers even spurn the big earnings gleaned from Christmas cabaret functions to appear in and sample panto-joy. Below are just a few of our subscribers and the details of their pantomime adventures at this special time of year. Mark Ritchie takes us through them.
Tony Peers Productions- Scarborough based Tony was a comedian and Pantomime Dame of some repute. For a long time now, Tony’s company has been involved in Panto-land, with many productions out there this year.
Billy Pearce- Appearing for the 20th consecutive year at The Alhambra Theatre in Bradford, Billy is a pantomime King, who is one of the brightest panto stars in the famous Qdos firmament.
Steve Walls- Steve is very busy as a comedian, singer and presenter, but he always jumps off the cabaret treadmill every year to appear in pantomime in his native Whitley Bay.
James and Murphy Productions- This West-Country based production house are very busy, with the Pantomime productions they create proving immensely popular.
Andy Eastwood- Appearing in pantomime this year in Hunstanton, Norfolk, Andy is always a pantomime favourite due to his charm, talent and versatility.
Stage door Productions- Sean Glenn is a Pantomime legend, with his Sheffield based company providing touring productions all over the North of England.
Simon Lowe- Simon runs the success Pantobus company and his productions fly off the shelves at his touring panto shop.
James Brandon- James is part of The Grumbleweeds comedy act these days, but he is also producer of the pantomime at The Academy Theatre in his native Barnsley. Meanwhile, The Grumbleweeds starred at The Royal Derngate theatre Northampton this time around.
