In co-production with Evolution Pantomimes, we are delighted toannounce that winner of Strictly Come Dancing 2019, Kelvin Fletcher, and CBBC presenter Sam Nixon, will be joining the cast for this year’s Sheffield Lyceum pantomime, Sleeping Beauty.
Best known for his role for over 20 years on Emmerdaleand most recently lifting the glitterball trophy on Strictly Come Dancing last year, Kelvin is preparing his charm to play the Prince in the show.
One half of Sam & Mark, Sam Nixon is best known for presenting shows such as TMI Friday, Sam & Mark’s Big Friday Wind Up and the revival of Crackerjack (coming this year) on CBBC – he’s brushing up his comedy chops to play Jangles.
Kelvin and Sam join Sheffield legend Damian Williams – who will play Nurse Nellie – with more star casting yet to be announced. Expect big laughs, bigger costumes and spectacular special effects in our most dazzling panto yet!
The show will once again be written by Paul Hendy, and produced by the same team who brought Cinderella to the Lyceum last year.
Sleeping Beauty runs at the Lyceum Theatre from Friday 4 December – Sunday 3 January 2021. Tickets are on sale now.
