Plans for re-opening are gathering pace, and we’re really excited to be announcing the latest addition to our panto cast today – X Factor finalist Sean Smith who will play Dick Whittington.
Portsmouth-born Sean shot to fame as one half of the duo Same Difference after reaching the final of the X Factor and being signed to Simon Cowell’s record label, where they released two albums. Sean has recently been combining theatre work with the release of his debut album Solo, and was reunited with his sister to record a special charity single with all proceeds going towards the NHS.
Our pantomime is really starting to take shape now, and I’m over the moon to have Sean joining Jack Edwards leading the cast this year. Sean represents everything we are looking for as part of our panto this year – a huge talent born and bred in Pompey. We’re proud to be showcasing the talent we have in our community.
We are working hard behind the scenes to ensure that when Christmas comes around, we can have a fantastic time, where everyone is in a safe environment, and I encourage everybody to show their support for our wonderful theatre and buy tickets for a proper family night out!
Stay in touch and stay safe!
With All Best Wishes.
