Theatr Clwyd has announced the cast for its Panto this Christmas.
Sleeping Beauty – The Rock ‘N’ Roll Panto will features more than 16 rock, pop and soul songs played live by a talented company of actor-musicians led by Dame Taffeta Trott, played by panto favourite Sean McKenzie.
Sean, who has starred in some of the biggest shows in the West End, made his Theatr Clwyd debut last year in Aladdin. Now he’s back in the most exciting, wide awake panto in the north!
Sean McKenzie’s recent shows include the National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, Alan Bennett’s Lady in the Van and the international tour of War Horse. On TV he starred in Vera, Downton Abbey and Shameless. His films include 24 Hour Party People.
Sean is joined by Theatr Clwyd panto stars Rowan Talbot, who played the Emperor last year, as King Camelot and Luke Thornton, seen recently in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium and in the UK tour of Footloose as Harold the Herald. Luke’s other recent highlights include performing as a soloist at the Royal Albert Hall and Sidney Opera House.
Britain’s Got Talent finalist James Ifan makes his panto bow as Simon Steadfast. He is joined by fellow newcomers David Heywood, fresh from the UK tour of Return To The Forbidden Planet, as Mordred and Emmy Stonelake as Frederica, an apprentice fairy. Zoe West, a recent performer at the Latitude Festival, plays the magical Fairy Fanciful.
Welsh TV favourite Lynwyn Haf Roberts take the part of Morgana, the witch. She played Cherry in the S4C soap Rownd a Rownd for two and a half years and then starred in the comedy Run Sbit.
Romance is in the air for Princess Susie, played by young musical theatre star Elian West and the exciting cast is completed by multi-instrumentalist Greg Coulson as the caustic anti-hero Domestos.
Sleeping Beauty – The Rock ‘n’Roll Panto is directed by Zoe Waterman, with original sets and costumes designed by Adrian Gee.
