What better place to watch a pantomime than the sparkling, fairytale setting of Buxton Opera House.
The Annual Buxton Opera House pantomime is growing year on year, with visitors travelling from all over the country to experience the definitive festive treat.
This year James Holmes is back by popular demand to play the role of the dame and Lucy Dixon will make her debut appearance as Snow White.
TV actor James Holmes is best known for playing barman Clive in the BBC’s popular comedy series Miranda; during the course of his career he has appeared in over 40 television and theatre productions. Last year he was acclaimed by press and public alike for his performance as Widow Twankey in Aladdin. This year James takes the helm as Dame Brenda Bakewell, who works as a long-suffering palace cook for the wicked Queen Belladonna.
Also performing at Buxton Opera House this Christmas is the gorgeous Lucy Dixon, who is well known for her many telly roles including Hollyoaks and Waterloo Rd.
2016 marks the 25th year that writer/director Philip Dart and his company have produced the pantomime at Buxton Opera House. The anniversary year with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Philip assures us, is better than ever, “a real blockbuster of a family show, to celebrate the anniversary in style.” The critics tend to agree – last year The Stage called the show “a delightful traditional pantomime with some innovative tweaks.” Whilst Manchester Theatre Awards hailed it as “a thoroughly entertaining and colourful panto.”
