Re: Birmingham Panto Cast Announcement
I am sure it will be fabulous. Qdos still reign number one for me. Last years Peter Pan at Newcastle ( also directed by Michael ) was simply breathtaking, but i simply expected much bigger current names. Not C listers but A listers like in past years! If you had cast Robert Lindsay or Joanna Lumley thatís more along the lines I would have expected. Iím sure it will be a great show. No dame this year though. Great shame as worked brilliantly last year at Newcastle. Would of been great to see Nigel back in Brum if truth be told. Anyway I have my seat and looking forward to it. I just worry that cast wonít put the bums on seats . Happy Panto-ing everyone!
I am disappointed it has taken so long to announce this,it seems as though other theatres have got the bigger stars.It is a bit of a letdown after such a fabulous Cinderella last year
I'd say the Palladium has had a big impact, 3 or 4 of their bigger names now seem to be regulars at the Palladium.
This isn't a great cast but Meera is actually quite a big name and is very funny. She just isn't someone I'd associate with panto
