A popular funny man will make a welcome return to Lowestoft to star in his fourth consecutive pantomime at the Marina Theatre.
Back by popular demand, Terry Gleed will take on the role of Smee in this year’s production of Peter Pan.
And having really found his home from home in Lowestoft, Terry – who has previously starred as Pickles in Sleeping Beauty, French Freddy in Beauty and the Beast and Wishee Wishee in Aladdin – is looking forward to his new role when Peter Pan runs for 32 performances between December 13 and January 1.
Speaking about his return, Mr Gleed said: “I am absolutely overwhelmed to be coming back for a fourth time. The audiences are always electric, exciting and with a warm family community spirit which encourages us on stage to have a fun connection.
“Doing schools visits and community Christmas events is a joy for me and the meet and greets in the foyer after each show is the icing on the cake.
“Lowestoft has a magic all on its own – from the moment I arrive until the curtain falls on the last night, I have a constant smile on my face.”
It will be the sixth time that Terry has taken a trip to Never Land, having previously played a Lost Boy opposite Lulu and Eric Sykes and most recently playing Smee alongside Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee at the Aylesbury Civic Centre in 2007.
Lee Henderson, chief executive of the Marina Theatre, said: “We are all delighted to welcome back our resident funny man to our most popular run of performances in the year.
“Terry always proves extremely popular with our audiences and we look forward to another fun-filled show for all the family to enjoy.”
Pantomime producer Paul Holman added: “I am delighted to bring Terry back to my home town of Lowestoft for a fourth consecutive season. The town has become a home from home for Terry. He loves the town and the people and he loves to make us laugh.”
Until February 2, you can purchase tickets for all Red and Blue performances (excluding Premium Seats) for just £13 as part of the theatre’s super early bird price offer.
