JULIAN CLARY AND NIGEL HAVERS RETURN FOR PALLADIUM PANTO (25 APRIL 2017)

Initial casting has been announced for the London Palladium production of Dick Whittington. Following the success of Cinderella last year, the production will see the return of Julian Clary who will play Spirit of the Bells, Paul Zerdin as Idle Jack and Nigel Havers as Captain Nigel. The show will run at the Palladium for five weeks only over the festive season from Saturday 9 December 2017 to Sunday 14 January 2018.

Julian Clary returns to the London Palladium following his triumphant success last Christmas as Dandini in Cinderella. Having begun his career as a camp comic thirty years ago, and despite the fervent wishes of the general public, he shows no signs of slowing down. His TV debut came in 1989 with ITV quiz show Trick or Treat and Channel 4's Sticky Moments. Julian Clary is a best-selling author, a regular panelist on Radio 4's Just a Minute and last year toured his one man show The Joy of Mincing.

Ventriloquist Paul Zerdin took the US by storm when he won America's Got Talent, which was swiftly followed by his own residency at the legendary Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Also a household name in the UK, Zerdin has appeared on The Royal Variety Performance no less than three times, was seen on Michael McIntyre's Big Christmas Show (BBC1) and last year appeared as Buttons in the London Palladium's Cinderella.

Nigel Havers is one of the country's best known actors thanks to his roles in Chariots of Fire, Passage to India, Empire of The Sun, Don't Wait Up and Man Child. More recently his TV credits include Coronation Street and Downton Abbey, whilst his numerous West End appearances include Art, The Importance of Being Earnest, and last year played the Lord Chamberlain in the pantomime Cinderella.

Pantomime will return to the London Palladium over the Festive Season in 2017 with Dick Whittington. It will run from 9 December 2017 to 8 January 2018.

On the return of pantomime to the Palladium Qdos Entertainment Chairman Nick Thomas said: "We've been overwhelmed by the exceptional response that our production of Cinderella has received - the show has now broken the Box Office record for the highest grossing week in the West End. We couldn't resist Really Useful Theatres invitation to return to the iconic home of pantomime for a second year and look forward to revealing more about Dick Whittington and its cast in the New Year."

Qdos Entertainment's run of Cinderella, which opened earlier this month, continues at the Palladium until 15 January 2017. The production - directed by Michael Harrison and co-directed and choreographed by Andrew Wright - has a cast including Paul O'Grady as Baroness Hardup, Julian Clary as Dandini, Amanda Holden as The Fairy Godmother, Lee Mead as Prince Charming, Paul Zerdin as Buttons, Nigel Havers as Lord Chamberlain, Count Arthur Strong as Baron Hardup, Natasha J Barnes as Cinderella and Suzie Chard and Wendy Somerville as The Wicked Stepsisters.
