PHENOMENAL ticket sales have been recorded for a star-studded Christmas pantomime at the Embassy Theatre in Skegness.

The Jamie Marcus production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs took place between December 14 and 31 where over 9,000 people attended to watch the cast in their glory.

Ticket sales were up 40 per cent after audiences were entertained by the spectacular show which contained an interactive ‘Magic Mirror’ and a CGI chase sequence with Scooby-Doo – a first for Lincolnshire.

And producer of the show Jamie Marcus says he is ‘delighted’ with how the panto went last Christmas, he said: “I am delighted with last year’s Christmas panto.

“The audiences were brilliant, not just for the numbers but because of how much they enjoyed the show.

“I want to say a big thank you to all the schools which came along and we hope to bring more this year.”

And Embassy Theatre Manager, Steve Rushforth, said: “We are always eager to bring high quality shows to the Embassy Theatre and this is a great example of something which has gone down well with both local people and visitors to the area.”

Tickets for the 2012 pantomime Cinderella are on sale now and Jamie Marcus says he is already excited about it and it will be the ‘most popular’ and ‘magical show’ of all at panto.

“It’s going to be bigger and better than last year and we’ll have beautiful Cinderella and a well-known face,”
