Panto Stars Bring Christmas Cheer Across North Essex

The stars of this year’s pantomime at Clacton’s Princes Theatre have been out and about meeting people before they take to the stage from Saturday, December 8.

Wendy, Smee, Tiger Lily and Mrs Darling first met the public at the Victorian Christmas Market, held at the Princes Theatre on Saturday, November 17.

Later that day they also visited young patients on the Children’s Ward at Colchester General Hospital to hand out presents and try to put smiles on the faces of those being cared for at the time.

On Sunday (November 25) X Factor runner-up Marcus Collins, who plays Peter Pan in this year’s Polka Dot Pantomimes production, and some of the cast helped to switch on Colchester’s Christmas lights, while this coming weekend they will turn on Clacton’s Christmas lights at the festive event taking place on Saturday, December 1.

Marcus said: “I love being able to get out and meet people and spread some Christmas cheer – it’s what doing panto is all about, so to be able to get festive before we tread the boards is brilliant,” he said.

“There was such a buzz at the Colchester light switch-on – an atmosphere I am sure will be even bigger at Clacton this weekend.”

Peter Pan is at the Tendring District Council-run Princes Theatre from December 8 until January 1. To book tickets go online at princestheatre.co.uk or call the box office on 01255 686633.
