Panto season is almost upon us again folks, and that can only mean one thing – soap’s finest (and former finest) will be taking to the stage, donning some tights and getting involved in some serious audience participation.
Here’s who you’ll find where:
Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale)
EastEnders veteran Adam will be heading to Swindon to play Captain Hook in Peter Pan.
Steve McFadden (Phil Mitchell)
Another EE old boy, Steve will also be playing the baddest of all panto baddies, Captain Hook, in Plymouth.
Shane Richie (Alfie Moon)
Shane has recently ruled out an Alfie Moon return because he’s focusing on his, ahem, music career. But he’s taking some time out to star as Robin Hood in Woking.
Claire King (Erica Holroyd)
Former Corrie and Emmerdale actress, Claire King, will be heading to Belfast to star in Peter Pan. She’ll be playing that really famous and well know role – The Magical Mermaid. No, us either.
Ryan Thomas (Jason Grimshaw)
We’ve missed Ryan on the cobbles, and he’s recently swapped Coronation Street for Ramsay Street. But he’s swapping Oz for Wales starring in Llandudno’s panto.
Marc Bayliss (Rob Donovan)
We’ve still not really forgiven him for killing Tina McIntrye (RIP), but in case you’re interested, Marc will be in New Brighton’s production of Peter Pan.
James Sutton (John Paul McQueen)
Possibly our favourite ever McQueen (soz, Theresa) former Hollyoaks actor James will be playing Captain Hook in Maidstone. (What is it with Peter Pan this year?)
Adam Thomas (Adam Barton)
Soon to be ex-Emmerdale star, Adam Thomas, will be joining Corrie legend, Denise Welch in Newcastle. And guess what? It’s not Peter Pan! Adam will be Jack in Jack and the Beanstalk.
