Jonathan Wilkes Returns To Regent Theatre
THE Regent Theatre’s favourite pantomime star and home-grown talent Jonathan Wilkes will return to Stoke-on-Trent in Snow White and Seven Dwarfs in this year’s annual Christmas extravaganza.
Potteries favourite Jonny is back for the ultimate Panto adventure and this year’s production promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
First Family Entertainment, producers of former smash hit favourites like Aladdin, Cinderella and Dick Whittington, return for the highlight of the Christmas calendar in this year’s Regent Panto.
The theatre’s Panto has become the must-see Christmas tradition and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs promises to be no different. The show will once again be packed with brilliant slapstick, hilarious comedy, stunning sets and sensational comedy.
Jonny will be joined by fellow Stoke-on-Trent Panto favourite Christian Patterson for this year’s show at The Regent Theatre. Christian wowed audiences once again last year after starring as an ugly sister in last year’s popular festive hit Cinderella.
The full cast for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be unveiled soon.
Press Officer and spokesman for The Regent Theatre, Jon Owen, said: “We are thrilled to once again welcome Jonny back to The Regent Theatre for this year’s Panto.
“Jonny is a local hero and Christmas wouldn’t be the same without Jonny here at The Regent Theatre.”
First Family Entertainment said:
“Jonny and Christian are the dream team of Panto.
“They never fail to create a side-splitting show that is enjoyed by young and old alike. We are so thrilled to be bringing them back to Stoke for Christmas.
“It’s going to be another Christmas cracker.”
Jonathan Wilkes said:
“There is no place I would rather be at Christmas than on the stage of The Regent Theatre in Stoke-on-Trent.
“And there is nobody I would rather be sharing it with than Christian Patterson. I’m not quite sure who has a better time – us on stage or the audience watching us.
“Snow White is going to be a spectacular production, one you will not want to miss, so bring the whole family along to see it.”
