Lincoln Drill Hall launches fairest panto of them all

This story is over

Lincoln’s panto-goers can book their tickets for this year’s pantomime at the Drill Hall, which promises to be a real crowd-pleaser.

The Jamie Marcus Productions’ performance of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs runs from December 7 to January 3 and follows on from last year’s Aladdin pantomime.

This year’s production features comedy villain Julie Fox returning as the Wicked Queen alongside Ashley Bates playing Muddles and Sophie Towns as Snow White, who are both performing in Lincoln for the first time.

Pupils from Monks Abbey Primary School were invited to a preview of the show on October 8, and enthusiastically joined in with the singing and cheering.

Event producer Jamie Marcus said: “Snow White is such a popular title and the kids absolutely love it. Adults also love it as they relive their childhood – we all grew up with the film which is timeless.

“This is the most enjoyable part of the year. This is when all the actors get together, the scripts have been written, the music is well underway.

“For me Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a panto. Having that fun, the boos and the cheers is fantastic. I’ve got kids and to see them interact is just magical.”

James Campbell, who plays Dame Victoria Sponge, said: “I can’t wait to be back in Lincoln again this Christmas. I love the city, I love the people, I love the Drill Hall and I love playing the panto dame!”

Seven-year-old Guy McMillan, who will be one of the dwarfs, added: “It was a lot of fun today. I can’t wait to perform in front of all the people at Christmas as well.”

Tickets start from £11 and are available from Lincoln Drill Hall box office, by calling 01522 873894, or by going online.
