The cast for the 2019 pantomime at London's Richmond Theatre has been announced.
Produced by Qdos Entertainment, this year's show will be Snow White. Tickets are on sale now here.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs tells the story of a princess who seeks refuge from her wicked and jealous stepmother by living with seven dwarfs - Doc, Sneezy, Grumpy, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, and Dopey.
As always a star cast will be bringing the story to life this festive season.
Richmond Panto 2019 cast
Well-loved comedian, writer, presenter and actress Jo Brand will star in the 2019 panto cast as The Wicked Queen.
After his swashbuckling success as Mr Smee in last year’s pantomime Peter Pan, Britain's Got Talent comedian Jon Clegg returns to star as Snow White’s best friend, Muddles in this, his 19th consecutive year in pantomime.
They will be joined by Jason Sutton, best-known for his award-winning alter ego Miss Jason who has been entertaining audiences across the country for over 17 years.
Jonathan Kiley, Casting Director for Qdos Entertainment said: “A theatre as iconic as Richmond really deserves the best casting so we are thrilled to have secured Jo Brand to star as the ultimate Wicked Queen.
"Not only will her deadpan humour make for a very different villain, it will have audiences in stitches, and coupled with the wonderful Jon and Jason, this year’s show will truly be magical.”
Richmond Theatre’s Theatre Director Brendan Riding added: “Jo has brought several of her stand up performances to Richmond Theatre over the years and I’m excited to see her as the Wicked Queen this year!
"With her classic dry wit and no doubt a SLICE of wickedness, she’s sure to have audiences in hysterics. Jon returns by popular demand and with Richmond newcomer Jason making this one Panto not to be missed!”
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs plays at Richmond Theatre between Saturday 7 December 2019 to Sunday 5 January 2020.
