Playhouse Whitley Bay confirms Linda Lusardi to star in this year's Christmas Panto!

Mirror Mirror On the Wall, Whitley Bay’s Christmas Pantomime is the greatest of them all! Having missed out last Christmas due to lockdown restrictions, The Playhouse Whitley Bay welcomes you back for a fairy tale adventure when the highly-acclaimed Christmas pantomime returns with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Linda shot to fame in the early 80’s as one of Britain’s best loved models. Her career has spanned nearly 30 years and includes TV, film, and stage.
Also Joining Linda on stage will be her model daughter Lucy Kane who plays Snow White, a talented singer who blew judges away on The Voice in 2017. Playhouse legend Steve Walls returns as Muddles, providing silliness aplenty. What’s more, Daniel Mawston, the North East’s favourite Dame, is back as Patsy the Cook dishing up platefuls of comedy goodness.
Will fair Snow White escape the clutches of the Wicked Queen with the help of the Magnificent Seven? Join us for the biggest panto of 2021 to find out. Expect spectacular scenery, a grand sing-a-long and enough buffoonery to last you a lifetime.

Playhouse Whitley Bay Theatre Director, Phil Smith said:

''We’re delighted to be able to share the fantastic news that Linda and Lucy will be joining Steve Walls and the rest of our amazing cast for what promises to be another fantastic Panto Season here at the Playhouse. We can’t wait to welcome audiences back safely and Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs will be the perfect show for the festive season.''

Producer Gary Telfer commented:

''I’m Thrilled to be bringing Panto back to North Tyneside after a year away. This year is going to be our biggest and best Pantomime season ever. We have so many great surprises in store, and I can’t wait to entertain the people of North Tyneside again. Linda is going to be a fabulous Wicked Queen and having Steve Walls back for his eleventh year at the playhouse is fantastic news for the fans of the show. We can’t wait to get started.''
