The panto will be produced by Paul Holman Associates - The award winning team behind last year’s record breaking 'Cinderella', and it will run at the town’s Marina Theatre from December 16 to January 3.
Paul Holman Associates said in their recent press release "Having shared the stage with Frank Sinatra, performed Christmas specials with the Two Ronnies and Morecambe and Wise, sung with Tom Jones, Stevie Wonder and Engelbert Humperdink, glamour, glitter and an evil serving of wickedness are promised as Denise Nolan is set to leave audiences spellbound with her portrayal of the ultimate pantomime diva as she stars as the Wicked Queen in the fairest pantomime of them all.
Pantomime producer Paul Holman, for Paul Holman Associates, said:
“The family singing dynasty, The Nolans, is known Worldwide and I’m delighted Denise is sharing her Wicked Queen with my home-town audience in a pantomime which promises to deliver all the winning ingredients people have come to expect and deserve; epic portions of comedy capers and audience participation, chart, chart-topping tunes with classic family favourites so everyone can have a toe-tapping, hand-clapping experience, fairy-tale scenery, creative costumes and of course, seven dwarfs full of mischief and merriment!”
Denise’s first steps into panto land saw her starring as the sweet and fair Snow White, not once but fifteen times, culminating in a hugely successful season at the London Palladium before hanging up Snow White’s dress and waving the wand of Fairy Godmother or casting a spell as Wicked Queen, in more recent years.
She took the West End by storm with her portrayal of Mrs Johnston in Willy Russell and Bill Kenwright’s hit musical 'Blood Brothers', before touring with the production for four years. Her successful Judy Garland Show, in which she uses all the original music and orchestration from the Judy Garland show at Carnegie Hall, has played in all the major concert halls in the UK to great critical acclaim and of course, everyone remembers Denise from her success with her sisters in The Nolans.
Playing the part of the perfect pantomime Prince, Jon Moses first came to public attention in Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s TV search to find a Jesus for his arena tour of his box-office smash, Jesus Christ Superstar. He sang his way into peoples’ hearts as his journey from his roots in Northumberland through to Lord Webber’s boot camp and live finals was played out nightly to millions of ITV viewers. The charming and charismatic singer went on to impress judges and the public and since then then he has won a legion of fans across the country with his amazing vocals and his warm, engaging and enthusiastic personality.
Joining Denise and Jon on stage will be actor and impressionist Philip Green Having made it to the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent, Philip first started his impressions at school where he often impersonated teachers, pupils and celebrities and after three years hard study at The Arts Centre in Guildford he graduated in 2011 and took his first professional stage performance.
