THE city’s media were invited to the press launch of the Epstein’s Easter panto today (24 February). LHK Productions’ Snow White will play at the theatre from 24 March – 6 April. The panto stars Celebrity Big Brother winner James Hill and the Royle Family’s Ricky Tomlinson. Ricky will be playing the Magic Mirror in a role that will be filmed for the show. On joining the show Ricky said: “I am delighted to be part of the Easter panto with LHK Productions, it is a perfect role for me, I appear in 27 performances and don’t even need to leave my comfortable, trusty armchair! Remote at the ready, this is going to be a barrel of fun.” Producer Lee Kelly added: “We are absolutely thrilled that Ricky has decided to be filmed to play the Magic Mirror, this really is the icing on the cake of what is already a fabulous cast for our Easter panto, Snow White.” James Hill, who shot to fame by winning The Apprentice, said: “I’m so excited to be doing my first panto with LHK Productions. It will be great to spend some time in Liverpool and playing Prince Charming will be fun…he taught me everything I know!” Joining James and Ricky will be Radio Merseyside presenter Debi Jones as the Wicked Queen and local actress Georgia Austin will be making her debut in a leading role as Snow White while panto favourite Michael Chapman will be fulfilling the role of pantomime dame.
