Re: More Southampton casting an announced
Yes I agree and those days were the best. I think it can also depend on the title. Dick Whittington leads itself to having a big ensemble cast due to the range of characters. Similar with Jack and the Beanstalk
With Peter Pan, and personally I think Snow white too, if you can't get a big name for Hook/Queen it's harder to flesh out with big names as they are the big scene stealers and usually main focus of the show.
I think that Qdos Southampton (and Palladium & Cardiff) line-up are like the ones Paul Elliott used to do (thinking of Lesley Joseph, John Nettles, Jeffrey Holland, Rosemarie Ford etc.) ...if only every venue could be the same ...think its a question of money tbh.
I wasn't that impressed with the Peter Pan line-up in Plymouth last year, but am really looking forward to seeing Dick Whittington this year. Might even nip up to Southampton (and London Palladium as well)
I think the Southampton cast is amazing, I prefer it to Birmingham, it’s a strong line-up.
Omg. I was going mainly for steve and bobby but i also love joe and I've seen Suzanne before Gonna be even more epic now and probably my last panto (getting too old for rhem lol)
This will be brilliant!
Joe McElderry, Three Degrees diva Sheila Ferguson and Hear’Say star Suzanne Shaw have been announced for this year's Dick Whittington which is the production that was at the Palladium last year.
Although not names that initially excite me I love how it's a big ensemble cast and not one name taking over
