Line-up announced for Grand Theatre pantomime

The cast has been revealed for Wolverhampton Grand's pantomime which arrives in the city this December.

Former Eternal vocalist and Hollyoaks’ star, Kelle Bryan; CBeebies’ favourite, Gyasi Sheppy and X Factor and West End star, Niki Colwell Evans join the previously announced cast of Evie Pickerill, Tam Ryan and Ian Adams in the theatre's production of Snow White.

Bryan, who plays the Good Fairy, is known for being a member of Eternal – Britain’s most successful R&B group ever. The band went on to sell over ten million records, notching up 14 top 15 UK hits and four top ten albums. Kelle’s West End debut came in 2017, treading the boards in the critically acclaimed play, Wings with Juliet Stevenson.

Gyasi Sheppy plays Prince William of Wolverhampton and is best known for his coveted role as a presenter and housemate in the CBeebies House. With a background in performing and entertainment, from a very young age he landed roles in feature films and TV commercials at home in Northern Ireland, before leaving the U.K. altogether to work as an actor and entertainment host for The Walt Disney Company aboard Disney Cruise Line and then Disneyland Paris. 

Niki Colwell Evans first rose to fame in 2007 when she reached the semi-final of series 4 of The X Factor, mentored by Louis Walsh. She went on to play the iconic role Mrs Johnstone in Blood Brothers at the Phoenix Theatre between 2008-2009 and in 2010 where she received rave reviews from critics.

Niki more recently appeared at Wolverhampton Grand in the UK tour of Kinky Boots in 2018 and she also played the role of Paulette in the musical adaptation of Legally Blonde in 2012. Chief Executive and Artistic Director of Wolverhampton Grand, Adrian Jackson said;

“We are delighted to welcome three wonderful new additions to our Snow White cast, securing a stellar line up for the entire family. Audiences of Wolverhampton and across the West Midlands are in for treat and are already booking in super early as this year’s panto promises to be the most ambitious and spectacular ever staged!

"We are commissioning brand new sets and costumes, and with the biggest panto band in the land, it will be the most lavish family pantomime, an unmissable festive event this Christmas!”
