Michael joins comedian Troy Harris who is returning due to great popular demand after his scene-stealing role as Buttons in last year’s Cinderella to play Captain Hook’s riotous right hand man Smee.

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 laughter and awe-inspiring flying guaranteed to entertain all the family.

Bridlington Spa will be joining forces once again with award-winning pantomime producers Paul Holman Associates to present this year’s production following on from the success and popularity of last year’s record-breaking Cinderella.

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.

Collabro went on to win the Eighth series of Britain’s Got Talent.

Pantomime producer Paul Holman said: “This Christmas, Michael will be stepping into the spotlight on his own to take centre stage as ‘the boy who never grew up’.

“He is going to wow panto-goers with his exuberance, cheeky sense of fun and breathtakingly beautiful voice as he flies high over the audiences of Bridlington Spa.”

Mark Lonsdale, general manager of Bridlington Spa, added: “In these difficult times, I am delighted that we are able to give people in the East Riding something to look forward to, and a glimpse ahead to a time when we hope we will be returning to something approaching normality again.

“I am excited that Michael will be starring in what promises to be another brilliant pantomime, after the enormous success of Cinderella last Christmas.”

The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan runs at Bridlington Spa from Monday, December 14 to Sunday, January 3, 2021. Tickets are on sale now via bridspa.com or through the Box Office on 01262 678258.
