IT will be a case of ‘Marina at the Marina’ when a special signed performance of this year’s pantomime, Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, takes to the stage in Lowestoft.

The performance, for those who are deaf or have hearing problems, will take place at the Marina Theatre at 6pm on Wednesday, December 29.

And, by coincidence, the sign language interpreter is also called Marina.

Marina Payne, 38, from Essex, will interpret the performance and says she is looking forward to it.

“I have an absolute passion for signed theatre and most recently signed a production of We Will Rock You,” she said. “I am hugely enthusiastic and cannot wait to sign the performance of Snow White being ‘Marina at the Marina’.”

Currently working in a mainstream secondary school as an educational communicator with 18 deaf students, Marina founded the Great Baddow High School Signing Choir in Essex in 2007, and they have since performed in all the schools’ Christmas/Spring concerts, including at Chelmsford Cathedral and talent shows, making a positive impact on the whole school.

Tickets for the signed performance of Snow White, which stars EastEnders’ Stefan Booth, Hi De Hi’s Nikki Kelly and DJ Mike McClean, are available from the Marina box office on 01502 533200. People with hearing difficulties are also able to gain further information and book by email at info@marinatheatre.co.uk
