DARLINGTON pantomime favourite Liam Mellor will lead the cast in his #Cracking Easter Show at The Majestic Theatre, Darlington.

The action-packed Easter extravaganza will include all aspects of pantomime fun including slapstick comedy, lots of songs and dance with plenty of audience participation.

Liam, fresh from a stint at Darlington Hippodrome, is no stranger to the world of pantomime having already performed in well over 25 pantomimes, performing alongside some of the biggest stars in showbusiness.

Liam, from Redcar, will be joined on stage by top UK Dame Robert Squire as Aunt Annie, singer Rebecca Lake and funny-man George Akid.

Producer Adam Cookson says: “I’m really looking forward to bringing Liam to Darlington this Easter for an intimate, action packed Easter show, it’s something completely different for the family, who might only get to see Liam at Christmas.

"I’ve assembled what I believe to be the best pantomime performers in the UK and hope the people of Darlington have an incredible time.”

Liam Mellor adds: “I’m excited to be returning to Darlington, I absolutely love the people and the place, everyone is so friendly. I can’t wait for everyone to come along and see this great Easter show, I won’t give too much away but there’s one part in the show that’s going to get very messy.”

Performances take place at 11am, 2.30pm and 5.30pm on Saturday, April 20. For more information and tickets visit www.majestictheatre-lee.com or call 01325 633296
