Lynn’s Corn Exchange have revealed their Christmas pantomime will be Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs this year with Only Fools and Horses’ Marlene set to star.

Sue Holderness will be taking up the role of the Wicked Queen – Narcissia in this year’s production, which follows four increasingly successful and critically-acclaimed pantomimes.

Sue is best known for her role as Marlene in Britain’s best loved sitcom Only Fools and Horses, which she played from 1984 until the final episode in 2003, and also co-starred with John Challis in four series of the spin-off The Green, Green Grass.

Sue began her career with Manchester’s 69 Theatre Company in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and went on to work consistently in theatre, radio, film and television.

Returning for a second year, after proving a big hit with audiences, is KLFM’s popular Breakfast show host Adam Newstead who will be taking to the stage as Herman The Henchman.

Head of programming and marketing at the venue, Nina McKenna, said “We are thrilled that Sue will be joining us as the Wicked Queen, she has a wealth of pantomime experience, and Snow White is already shaping up to be our most successful panto yet!!”

The production will be staged from December 5-31 and tickets are already available from the box office on 01553 764864 or at
