Panto Preview Proves Popular!

You know what it’s like, no sooner as the kid’s have gone back to school than the shops start getting their tinsel and cards out in preparation for the festive season. Today, the Royal Spa Centre went one better by providing a special preview show of their Christmas pantomime Dick Whittington.

Schools, community groups and residents turned out in force to enjoy a free showcase of musical and comedy talent.

Vicki Lee Taylor, who starred in CITV’s Big Meg, Little Meg, sung Just Arrived from the musical Copacabana and danced her way through the Liza Minelli number Steppin’ Out. Vicki will be appearing in this Saturday’s edition of Star for a Night with Jayne MacDonald on BBC1. 

Following up from playing Buttons in last year’s panto, the comedy entertainer Wink Taylor kept the children interested with some magic tricks. 

Eve SteeleThere was also an interview with Eve Steele who played the psycho Freshco’s boss Anne Malone in Coronation Street. In a contrast to her evil Corrie role, Eve will be playing the Good Fairy. Since leaving the soap, Eve has appeared in the ITV dramas Peak Practice and Always and Everyone.

The preview was rounded off by the singer Mark Rattray, who has been touring in the title role of Lanza – The Last Serenade for the last two years. Mark, spent time serving on the wards of Coventry and Warwickshire hospitals as a nurse before he found fame back in 1990 after winning Opportunity Knocks.

The cast also includes the singer Maggie Moone (Dick) who unfortunately couldn’t attend today due to the ongoing fuel crisis.

Dick Whittington runs from 21 December 2000 to 8 January 2001. Tickets are available from the Box Office 01926 334418.

Also, keep an eye out for prizes of Family Tickets in the CWN Daily Competition over the next few weeks...
