Stars of this year’s panto at Melton Theatre, Peter Pan, enjoyed a tour of the town on market day.
Hollyoaks actress Beth Kingston, known to millions as India Longford in the Channel 4 soap opera, will play Wendy in the panto, which will be performed from December 16-20.
Other stars who visited Melton on Tuesday for the panto’s official launch included star of ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent Steven Hall, who will play Pirate Winkle, Nicola McAllister, who will play Peter Pan, and Beth McMillan, who will play Tinkerbelle.
Louis Emerick, best known for his role as Pc Walsh in the BBC TV series Last of the Summer Wine and his 12-year stint as cab driver Mick Johnson in Brookside, will also star in the panto, as Captain Hook.
He was unable to attend on the day due to currently being on tour with the Full Monty.
We’re sure he was really just guarding his buried treasure!
The cast are set to return to Melton for the Christmas light switch-on event.
Tickets for the panto are £13 for adults and £11 concessions. A family of four is £42 with schools and groups £9 each. All prices are inclusive of a £1 booking fee per ticket.
