Silly Billy, Danny Beard and Jasette Amos return for 10th Anniversary!
Sevenoaks’ best loved panto performers, Ant ‘Silly Billy’ Payne, Britain’s Got Talent star Danny Beard, and the Stag’s favourite baddie, Jasette Amos, will all star in Dick Whittington at the Stag Theatre this Christmas.
Ant Payne, who played the hilarious Silly Billy for five years in Sevenoaks, will return to play the comic in this year’s family panto, Dick Whittington - a role he first played in the same panto at the Stag in 2009.
Danny Beard, who wowed Sevenoaks’ audiences as the Magical Mirror in the record breaking Snow White at the Stag last Christmas, will return to play the equally fabulous Spirit of London.
Playing the evil Queen Rat will be Jasette Amos. Jasette is one fo the Stag’s favourite panto stars, having been booed as the Wicked Queen (Snow White 2017-18), and Malevesis (Sleeping Beauty 2016-17), and cheered as the Fairy Godmother (Cinderella 2014-15), the Genie (Aladdin 2012-13) and Fairy Fabulous (Jack And The Beanstalk 2010-11).
Also joining the cast will be previous Panto Factor winner and Stag Sevenoaks regular Lucy Reed. Lucy won the role of Princess Jasmine in Aladdin at the Stag, her first professional break, back in 2012. Lucy was last seen in Sevenoaks playing the title role in Cinderella (2014-15), and will be playing Alice Fitzwarren in Dick Whittington this Christmas.
Further casting is to be announced.
