Excitement for 2019’s pantomime season is building already at the Marina Theatre with the announcement that Collabro’s singing sensation Michael Auger will headline as the Prince in this year’s traditional family pantomime, Snow White.
Pantomime Producer Paul Holman said; ‘This Christmas, Michael will be stepping into the spotlight on his own to take centre stage as Snow White’s charming Prince. He is going to wow audiences with his breathtakingly beautiful voice and I’m excited for Lowestoft to see what we have in store for them this year.’
Marina Theatre CEO Emma Butler Smith said; ‘ Our 2018 panto was the most successful we’ve ever had, so we are delighted to have Michael Auger coming to the Marina Theatre, not only with Collabro in March, but returning in December to be a part of all of the pantomime fun!’
The world’s most successful Musical Theatre group, the Collabro boys met for their first rehearsal only one month before going on to wow the Britain’s Got Talent judges, Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams, at their first round audition at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.
Their rousing rendition of Stars (their first public performance as a group) brought both the audience and all four judges to their feet, shooting them to a coveted spot in the live finals. Collabro went on to win the eighth series of Britain’s Got Talent with one of the highest majorities in the show’s history. Millions of captivated viewers watched as Collabro claimed their prize, performing in front of the Duke of and Duchess of Cambridge at the 2014 Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium.
2019 will see the band complete their biggest tour yet, with 52 dates throughout the UK – including Saturday 30th March at the Marina Theatre – culminating at the world famous Royal Albert Hall in London.
Michael joins Lowestoft’s favourite funny-man, Terry Gleed, who returns for his 5th consecutive year at the Marina Theatre, this time in the role of Snow White’s loveable sidekick, Muddles.
This year’s production promises to be more spectacular than ever featuring all of the traditional elements of pantomime combined with dazzling scenery and costumes, bucket-loads of laugher and a sensational cast star.
