York’s very own Town Crier, Ben Fry, will be performing in this year’s pantomime: Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs at the Grand Opera House York. Ben is adding another string to his already busy bow with his appearance in the panto. As well as Town Crier, Ben presents a morning show on Minster FM.
“It’s a dream come true to join the Grand Opera House panto cast, I didn’t think anything could top ringing the Town Crier bell at Ellie Goulding’s Wedding, but being the Town Crier of Trumpville this Christmas will beat it”, Says Ben.
Producer and director Chris Moreno adds:
“After a lengthy radio interview with Ben at Minster FM it was obvious that Ben was passionate about pantomime. I was in the middle of writing the script for my production of Snow White when I thought what fun it would be to have Ben in the show as The Town Cryer ( oyez!… oh no!) it took him all of 2 seconds to say yes!… we are really delighted that he will be joining our fabulous cast, Vicki Michele, Mark Little and Martin Daniels. The fun begins on December 12th for a fabulous Christmas at The Grand Opera House York.”
Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs stars Allo Allo’s Vicki Michelle and Mark Little from Australian soap Neighbours and will run from Thursday 12 December until Saturday 5 January 2020.
