Dean Gaffney, Kerry Katona and Joanne Clifton in Mansfield spring panto

Posted onPosted on 16th May

Anton Benson Productions’ Rapunzel pantomime is at Mansfield Palace Theatre for a half-term adventure on Tuesday, 30th May.

Former Atomic Kitten star, I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here winner and household favourite Kerry Katona stars as the evil Mother Gothel. Kerry will be joined by Eastenders and I’m a Celebrity treasure Dean Gaffney as the hapless Prince Percy, Strictly Come Dancing and World Champion dancer Joanne Clifton playing the titular Rapunzel, and Britain’s Got Talent 2022 runners-up Jamie and Chuck as the Court Jesters.

Completing the cast are returning Spring Panto favourites Ryan Greaves as Wally, Phylip Harries as the Dame ‘Queen’ Dolly, and Kate Salmon as Fairy Tale. Juvenile dancers will be provided by local dance schools with Olivia Zacharia on keyboards and Jake Greville on drums.

Producer Anton Benson said “A panto is for life and not just for Christmas. The regulars at our home venues love our annual Christmas shows and given how much of a hit our previous Spring panto tours have been, we are delighted to be back out on the road with our brand new hair-lairious production of Rapunzel.”
