Su’s Panto Career: Decades of Festive Fun!

December 8th, 2017

snowwhite17s

This very evening Su is reprising her Wicked Queen for another month of boos and hisses, as well as lots of festive fun, drama and music, at the Aylesbury Waterside in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Su is a true panto stalwart, it’s always been one of her specialities and she has been both principal boy and girl across the UK in Goldilocks, Babes In The Woods, Pinocchio, Jack And The Beanstalk, Mother Goose, Aladdin, and Dick Whittington.

In 2002 Su took on the role of the Wicked Queen in Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs, her first outing as a “baddie”. A role she enjoyed playing so much she reprised it for Christmas 2003, 2005, 2006 and almost every year since!

Though in both 2010 and 2011 Su embraced Annie The Musical instead of panto, playing another “Baddie”, Miss Hannigan.

Su’s panto co-stars have included many top names in the acting profession, and much loved showbiz personalities; Matthew Kelly, Bernard Cribbins, Bernie Winters, Robyn Askwith, Gordon Honeycombe, Ray Meagher, Michael Elphick, Don Maclean, Peter Blake, Paul Danan, Louise English, Shaun Curry, Christopher Lillicrap, David Hasselhoff, and Chris Jarvis to name but a few!
