The cast for Rumpelstiltskin
Rumpelstiltskin the Panto is coming to Saddleworth 9th-31st December.
We’ve got some friendly faces returning…they are:(From top left to bottom left)
👑LAUREN STEELE as PRINCESS MARIA
You may remember Lauren from Dick Whittington in 2021 (back then she played Alice Fitzwarren). She reprised her role of Alice for The Big Tiny in 2022 at The Met in Bury. Well, this year she’s back in Market Drayton and Saddleworth to play another Princess! We’re so excited to have her back.
🕷️ NANCY PENVOSE as RUMEPLSTILTSKIN
Another familiar face is Nancy. She starred alongside Lauren in 2021’s Dick Whittington as Queen Rat and chased her all the way to The Met to delight and scare audiences there last Christmas. This year she’s getting her baddie on again and playing the title role, Rumpelstiltskin.
👑 KEVIN MORNAS as PRINCE DIERDRICK
We’re super excited to welcome Kevin to The Big Tiny family. Kevin original hails from Sweden and has not long returned to the UK after playing the role of The Romantic in Choir of Man on Norwegian Encore Cruises. This obviously makes him the perfect choice to play the prince!
🪄 TESSA VALE as CUPID
This year Tessa is playing Cupid the fairy. She returns after last year playing the Empress and Sergeant Pepper in Aladdin. Tessa’s excellent comic timing (did you catch her when she appeared in Horrible Histories on tour?!) and supreme vocal talent made her an audience favourite last year, so we knew we had to have her back. We can’t wait!
🎭DOMINIC McCHESNEY as WINNIE THE WARDEN
Back by popular demand, it wouldn’t be a Big Tiny panto without the hilarious Dominic as dame, would it?! We’re delighted to have him back. Between panto’s, Dominic appears as a staple player in the famous Sidmouth Rep, where he rehearses and stages a new play nearly every week throughout the Summer season!
🤡 MICHAEL PELLMAN as BADGES
Michael (who played Aladdin in 2022) returns this year, but this time as as our hilarious comic, Badges. Since last panto he has been busy with Aida Cruises, wowing the crowds on the big blue sea. Welcome back, Michael.
