Snow wicked! New Dawn breaks for panto sea­son

Daily Express - - RICHARD & JUDY - By Liz Perkins

DAWN French is pic­tured as you have never seen her be­fore get­ting into char­ac­ter to make her panto de­but.

The 61-year-old ac­tress and co­me­dian trans­formed into a Wicked Queen as she pre­pared for her spell­bind­ing per­for­mance in Snow White, along­side a star-stud­ded cast.

Di­rec­tor Michael Har­ri­son said he was de­lighted to sign Dawn.

“I’ve been try­ing to coax Dawn for a long time. She’ll be funny, with a twin­kle in her eye,” he said. Panto fans will see Ju­lian Clary make a re­turn to the show, play­ing the Man In The Mir­ror, with ex-Strictly Come Danc­ing pros Vin­cent Si­mone and Flavia Cacace also in the cast.

Co­me­dian Paul Zerdin will play Mud­dles, Nigel Havers is The Understudy and Gary Wilmot is Mrs Crum­ble.

The show runs at the Lon­don Pal­la­dium for five weeks from De­cem­ber 8.
