Pantomime, from 13 Dec 2016

The Spa Bridlington


The Right Honourable Ann Widdecombe steps in at the last minute to play the Wicked Queen in The Spa Bridlington’s pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, this Christmas. She replaces the previously announced Lorraine Chase; who has become unavailable due to injury.

MP for Maidstone between 1987 and 1997 and for Maidstone and the Weald between 1997 and 2010, she is more recently known for her explosive appearance on the BBC Saturday night favourite, Strictly Come Dancing. Her most memorable dance with partner Anton du Beke seeing here fired from a cannon.

Away from show-business, she has been a novelist since 1999; her most recent book, The Dancing Detective, was published in 2014.

Ann will be accompanied on stage by returning co-stars Simon Grant, formally from CBBC and Joe Standerline, recently seen in Hollyoaks. The cast also includes additional co-star Asa Elliot from ITV’s Benidorm as the Prince.

Andrew Aldis, general manager of The Spa Bridlington, said, “With only two weeks to go until rehearsals were due to start it was pretty terrifying to hear of Lorraine Chase’s injury. We quickly learnt that she is expected to make a full recovery so our focus turned to recasting the role of the Wicked Queen.

“We are enormously grateful to Miss Widdecombe for changing her plans at the last minute to spend her Christmas with us in Bridlington. We loved her appearance on Strictly Come Dancing and we think the audience will enjoy seeing her in this somewhat darker role.

“We all send our love to Lorraine Chase and we hope to see her back on her feet soon. Who knows, we may see her in Bridlington at some point in the future.”

With stunning visual effects to create the essential magic mirror, a dashing prince to save the day, and, of course, seven dwarfs full of mischief and merriment, the pantomime really is the best traditional pantomime for audiences of all ages.

This classic tale will be brought to life with star name casting, stunning costumes, creative choreography, scenery straight from an enchanting fairytale, and a fast-paced story line, all ensuring this year’s production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a truly wicked pantomime!

A bite of Snow White’s apple at The Spa Bridlington is available from £17.50 for adults with further discounts available for children, senior citizens, groups and families so it really is never too early to book!
