Danny Posthill is the latest star name to be added to the bill of Tyne Theatre and Opera House 2017 pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The comedian and impressionist who shot to fame on Britain's Got Talent in 2015 will be starring as Dame Dotty Donut in this year's Christmas panto.
North East based Danny, who reached the final of Britain’s Got Talent, is no stranger to playing the Dame in pantos and audiences are in for a real treat when he brings his hilarious impressions to life during Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Danny has perfected great impressions of celebs like Jimmy Carr, Donald Trump, Ant & Dec, Lee Evans, Sarah Millican, Michael McIntyre and Keith Lemon. You can expect to be giggling all night after hearing his impression of the big orange one’
yep, you know the one! Joining Danny are two more star-studded names; Matt Pagan, a Britain’s Got Talent winner from 2014, who will be playing the Prince and Michelle Heaton, from pop band Liberty X, who will be the pantomime’s Wicked Queen.
Matt, who is part of world-famous singing group Collabro, has just finished supporting Cliff Richard on a UK tour. But before taking on the role of panto Prince, Collabro have their own headline tour which finishes on the 2nd December. Matt will then be flying straight back to Newcastle to star in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Families can expect to hear some fantastic singing from Matt and the rest of the cast as well as the much-loved songs Heigh-Ho’ and Whistle While You Work’ from the movie. Gateshead born Michelle Heaton is back on home ground to play the Wicked Queen. Adding glamour and fierceness, as well as a Liberty X song or two into the panto, Michelle will be an audience favourite for sure.
Tyne Theatre Panto enthusiasts will also be thrilled to know that Geordie comics Charlie Richmond and Lewis Denny will both be returning in the show again this year as the comedy characters Muddles and Herman the Henchman. The leading lady is played by Robyn McEnaney, a local singing star who won the theatre’s search to find the perfect Snow White from the North East. No stranger to playing a fairy tale Princess, Robyn recently worked at Disneyland as Cinderella proving that she is more than qualified to take on the role.
