The full cast line-up for Peter Pan at The Chrysalis Theatre in Milton Keynes has been announced by 1702 Productions ahead of this year's panto season and top of the bill is 1990’s legend, Mr Blobby.
The show mark’s the character’s return to the stage – his last pantomime was in 2004. Britain’s Got Talent finalist, ventriloquist Steve Hewlett plays Mr Smee, along with his trusty “right-hand-man” Arthur Lager in the role of Grandad Smee. West End and TV star CJ de Mooi completes the headline cast, playing the dastardly Captain Hook.
In the title role of Peter Pan is the wonderful Lucy-Rose Rollason. Lucy is also the show’s choreographer, working with children from the Rollason Stage School and the Rebecca Marie Academy of Dance. The role of Starkey is being played by popular children’s entertainer Kev Stevens. Both Kev and Lucy come to the production as students of the British Pantomime Academy, an organisation set up and run by MK panto favourite, Kev Orkian.
Luke Harriot dons the nautical but nice frocks in the role of Mrs Smee, Katie Phizacklea plays Tinker Bell and Lillia Grace takes on the role of Tiger Lily. Hertfordshire based actress and singer Cara Bo plays Wendy. Jono Andrews plays Goliath and Eveey Ruth plays Nancy. As well as performing, Eveey owns Animal Evalution, a company which provides animals for stage productions – and indeed she’ll be bringing along Pasha who appears as Fish, the ship’s dog!
Peter Pan is a traditional family pantomime with everything – aerial flying, real animals and a celebrity headline cast – all at low affordable prices. Tickets for the show are available now at www.peterpanmk.co.uk
