An international recording and singing star is set to lead Lowestoft’s big pantomime cast as the Wicked Queen.
The Marina Theatre’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will star vocalist and former Blood Brothers lead, Denise Nolan, along with ITV’s Superstar finalist, Jon Moses and Britain’s Got Talent impressionist, Philip Green.
The production, which runs at the Marina Theatre from December 16 to January 3, will once again be produced by Paul Holman Associates – the award-winning team behind last year’s record-breaking Cinderella.
Having shared the stage with Frank Sinatra, performed Christmas specials with the Two Ronnies and Morecambe and Wise, sung with Tom Jones, Stevie Wonder and Engelbert Humperdinck, Denise Nolan looks set to leave audiences spellbound with her portrayal of the ultimate pantomime diva.
Glamour, glitter and an evil serving of wickedness are promised as she stars as the Wicked Queen.
As well as singing a wide range of hits with her sisters, Denise has took the West End by storm with her portrayal of Mrs Johnston in Willy Russell and Bill Kenwright’s hit musical Blood Brothers, before touring with the production for four years. Her successful Judy Garland Show has played in all the major concert halls in the UK.
Pantomime producer Paul Holman said: “The family singing dynasty, The Nolans, is known worldwide and I’m delighted Denise is sharing her Wicked Queen with my hometown audience in a pantomime which promises to deliver all the winning ingredients people have come to expect and deserve.”
Playing the perfect pantomime Prince, Jon Moses first came to public attention in Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s television search to find a Jesus for his arena tour of his box-office smash, Jesus Christ Superstar.
The line-up also includes comedian and entertainer Rik Gaynor as Muddles with Joe Standerline as Dame Dolly Dumpling, and taking the title role of Snow White is Georgia Phillips.
