Coronation Street star Vicky Entwhistle is to play the Bad Fairy in panto this year.
Renowned as loudmouth factory worker, Janice Battersby, the much-loved soap actress is looking forward to taking on the role in Sleeping Beauty at Mansfield Palace Theatre.
She said: “I love pantomimes and seem to have a track record for playing villains! It’s about the kids at the end of the day, I love to hear them booing or hissing because getting a reaction is what it’s all about.”
Sleeping Beauty runs at the Palace Theatre from November 29 until January 5. Tickets are priced at £12.50, £11.50 for concessions and £44 for a family of four up until August 30. After this date tickets will revert to the normal prices of £13.50, £12.50 for concessions and £48 for a family of four. All of the above ticket prices are subject to a 2.5 per cent booking fee.
