One thousand lucky people have a chance to win tickets to see the stars of this year’s pantomime at the Waterside Theatre in a special 45-minute showcase.

EastEnders and stage actress Anita Dobson who plays Carabosse the Wicked Fairy will join Andy Collins and Holly Brewer to give a taste of what you can expect from Sleeping Beauty at Christmas time.

A similar event last year with Russell Grant sold out within a week of being announced, so get down to the theatre or call the box office on 0844 871 7607 straight away to secure your tickets.

The enchanting morning, which will take place on Saturday July 20 from 10.30am will be a magical, fun filled event with songs, games, competitions, goodies, entertainment and refreshments.

Everyone there will get an exclusive glimpse of panto magic. And there will be a chance to get to know the stars of Sleeping Beauty and ask questions.

Beautiful Holly Brewer who plays Sleeping Beauty, returns to the Waterside after performing in last year’s panto with comedian, actor and telvision presenter Andy Collins who is also returning to play Chester the Jester.

Anita Dodson has performed in the role of Carabosse before, and is looking forward to reprising the wicked fairy.

“I hope the beautiful costumes I had are still available,” she told the Herald earlier this year. “Carabosse is great fun, the baddies always are, and the children love to hate you.

“Pantomime is often the first theatrical experience for a lot of children, and gives them that first opportunity to get them into a theatre and excited by it.”
